2011/2012 Association Executive Compensation and Benefits Report
a finding you can take to the bank: the more education you have the
more money you're likely to earn. And while that may come as no
surprise, you need more than guesswork when negotiating salary or
deciding on your next professional development investment.
year's research report, which showcases the benefits and compensation of
1,751 not-for-profit executives (at four levels, described below) in
605 organizations, offers the hard facts association professionals and
their Boards need to address critical salary and benefit issues.
Who Is Included in the CSAE Compensation Report?
research report looks at 4 categories of employees across the not-for-
profit sector, further sub-dividing the results into 4 organization
types: trade/industry, professional, charity and other common-interest
- A-level represents the single, most senior full-time salaried executive who reports directly to the Board.
B-level are the executives who reports to "A," such as a Vice
President, Assistant Executive Director, Assistant General Manager
C-level are the full-time are the senior directors or managers
responsible for a particular area reporting to either "A" or "B"
D-level are managers who report to either "A." "B" or "C" who typically
follow policies and budgets established by "A." "B" or "C."
Impact of Education - Just What Is a Degree Worth to You? Here's just
one example of the kind of hard data this report offers.
executive salaries increase by approximately $20,000 between each degree
level. That's roughly $10,000 per year of post-secondary education.
B-level executives achieve an even greater boost in monetary
compensation upon completion of a master's degree. In fact, their
increase equates to an amazing 45 per cent over the compensation
received with a bachelor's degree.

Consider This: Academic Degrees Aren't the Only Route to Higher Pay
executives who have attained the CAE designation earn more - and often
substantially more - than their counterparts without it. In other words,
the Certified Association Executive (CAE) designation is not only a
wise long-term career investment, but also one that pays annual
dividends. As the table below shows, B-level executives enjoy a sizeable
30 per cent increase in monetary compensation over their peers without
