    2017 KSAE Compensation and Benefits Survey

    The 2017 KSAE Compensation and Benefits Survey was done in conjunction with a group of state societies of association executives with support from Whorton Marketing & Research.

    1,315 associations across the U.S. participated in this year’s survey, including members and non-members of 26 SAEs. Participation included 11 South, 8 Northeast, 8 Midwest, and 5 West states.

    The KSAE report features its own data, state-wide.

    The national study compares compensation across states for 39 positions.

    Both the Kansas and full national reports present detailed compensation overall by budget and staff ranges, geographic scope and membership structure.
