Members please participate in upcoming compensation survey
On April 4th, you will receive an email from Readex Research with a list of members in your component that have been invited to participate in the 2017 Compensation Survey, but haven't responded to date. We encourage you to contact them directly, as we are only able to report regions if we receive enough responses.

New Firm Benchmarking Tool
AIA's Firm Benchmarking Tool will help firms compare their data with newly available AIA Firm Survey data. It is an online interactive portal that launches with a module containing three key performance indicators of financial success-revenue per employee, profitability, and share of repeat clients.
