National Compensation StudyAmerican Research Company's (ARC) study takes an in-depth look at the compensation of chief staff executives at national, international, state, and regional associations. The annual survey canvasses a randomly selected sample of associations from a mail survey which produces about 500 responses, supplemented by information obtained from Internal Revenue Service tax returns for all remaining associations.
ARC's National Compensation Study represents the largest and most accurate database of association CEOs of any survey of its type - 3,300 national and international CEOs are included, along with 2,800 state and regional CEOs, for a total of 6,100 CEOs.
Priced at $659 (plus $9 shipping fee), the study includes the ARC CompReport® - a customized analysis and report that uses characteristics provided by the purchaser to indicate the average pay and range for a CEO at a directly comparable organization.
Unlike Any Other Survey
ARCs National Compensation Study covers only association CEOs, and it covers them like no other survey. The ARC CompReport® , the detailed information provided on types of compensation, our extensive database, and the sophisticated statistical techniques we have developed set us apart for the competition.
Now in its 24th year, and with a database of 6,100 CEOs, the survey is highly regarded in the association community and is regularly recommended by consultants to CEOs and their boards as a tool to help determine compensation packages.
ARC's National Compensation Study, published annually since 1991, will be discontinued. The current 2014-2015 National Compensation Study will be the final edition.
For those wishing to receive the current 2014-2015 National Compensation Study, and the companion customized ARC CompReport, copies will remain available through the end of July of 2016, or as long as the Studies last.
"After a 30 plus year career in survey and statistical analysis, and 24 years specifically with association CEO compensation surveys, I have decided to retire in 2016. It has been a pleasure and an honor to work with association CEOs, their senior staff, and their boards of directors over the years. I want to sincerely thank our loyal customers for their support, and wish them continued success in their careers."
