Compensation is a touchy subject for many drawn to the mission-driven world so we’ve brought in a guest familiar with associations and the salaries offered across country. Joel Poznansky is the President of Columbia Books & Information Services which publishes a number of essential guides for nonprofit management such as the annual Nonprofit Compensation Report and a comprehensive report of all active associations in the United States. CBIS also publishes the website Association Trends to help association executives keep abreast of current nonprofit developments.
