Wondering what you're worth? Facts on not-for-profit compensation
I'm wondering how this compares to not-for-profit wages and credentials in the US? 

Here are Canadian not-for-profit organization wage statistics forwarded from the Canadian Society of Association Executives via the BC Museums Association.

2011/2012 Association Executive Compensation and Benefits Report

Here's 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.

This 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?

This 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 not-for profits.
- 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."    

Monetary 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.

A-level 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
Not-for-profit 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 the designation.
