Salary/Benefit Survey and Budget Survey

2020 Online Editions Available Mid-July for Completion

The 2020 editions of both survey questionnaires—CEO & Staff Salary and Benefits Survey and the DMO Budget Survey—will be online in mid-July for completion. The surveys are part of the “members-only” suite of services, with results accessible only to survey participants.

Remember, more completed online surveys means more relevant data. Your industry colleagues will appreciate your participation!

Salary & Benefits Survey

CEOs are asked 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.

DMO Budget Survey

Due to the public-health crisis this year, there has been significant changes to budget allocations that will be reflected in this year’s survey. Plan to complete the 2020 edition of the DMO Budget Survey later this summer and encourage your fellow CEOs to do the same. Members use the survey information when creating budgets and planning organization expenditures. Results will be available via the standard DMO ‘profile’ or download the tabulation version.
