Salary/Benefits and Bureau Budget Online Surveys

2015 Questionnaire Editions

Salary & Benefits Survey: Two years ago, we made significant changes in the Staff Salaries section of the Salary and Benefits Survey. We discontinued the using staff position titles and asked CEOs to report staff salary information by key function areas at various levels from executive level to support level. Reminder: If your DMO does not have a comparable position of any listed, leave the salary information blank for that position(s). For example, if your organization does not have a Vice President/Director of Communications, but has a Communications Manager, you would leave the lead-position salary box blank and report the average salary for your organization’s Communications Manager in the appropriate box.

Bureau Budget Survey: Interested to know how your budget stacks up to others in your competitive set? Curious about changing budget allocations in today’s environment?  If so, plan to complete the 2015 edition of the Bureau Budget Survey later this summer and encourage your fellow CEOs to do the same. Members use the survey information when creating budgets, researching funding sources and planning bureau expenditures. Results available via the standard bureau ‘profile’ or download the tabulation version.

Both editions of the 2015 surveys will be online for completion. The surveys are part of the “members-only” suite of services, with results accessible only to survey participants.

More completed online surveys translates to more relevant data. Your industry colleagues will appreciate your participation!
