  • Association Compensation and Benefits Survey

    It's been a long-time challenge for associations to find the best ways to fairly compensate employees while still attracting and retaining the most desirable candidates. Underpay, and employees will eventually look for a better offer. Overpay, and your budgets and profitability will suffer. That’s why it’s imperative that you reference the Association Forum of Chicagoland’s 2016-17 Compensation & Benefits Survey. Don’t allow others to determine the market for you.
