Association IT Salaries

In this post I talked about IT salaries in the general population. At the time I wasn’t aware that ASAE had updated their Association Compensation book, but now that I have a copy of it, I can report how the association salaries compare to the at-large IT population.

It’s difficult to make an absolute apples-to-apples comparison, but based on the Global Knowledge IT survey and the ASAE study, when comparing the database adminstrator position, the numbers looked like this: $74,263 in the IT survey, $62,092 in the ASAE survey.

That’s a $12K disparity, or a nearly 20% premium for the for-profit sector. As I said in the first post, if you’re underpaying your technical staff, you’re getting what you pay for.
