|National Compensation Study
American 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 - 3,400 national and international CEOs are included, along with 2,900 state and regional CEOs, for a total of 6,300 CEOs.
Priced at $599 (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 22nd year, and with a database of 6,300 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.
