Benchmarking: AssociaMetrics


AssociaMetrics is a convenient and dynamic one-stop gateway to association benchmarking data. A one-year Premium subscription provides online access to the full complement of association industry data aggregated from ASAE.

Organizations can use the data to

  • inform decisions and strategy
  • support board presentations
  • identify potential areas for improvement
  • pinpoint strong performance areas to build upon or showcase
  • negotiate salary increases
  • ensure personnel compensation, structure, and size are competitive
  • provide a more accurate picture of financial performance and position

Custom nesting filtering lets you view aggregated data, providing a powerful yardstick for comparison. Association leaders can use areas of discrepancy as a guide to investigate whether adjustments in compensation, benefits or financial operations are warranted. Custom reports can be exported to Excel, Word, or PDF.

AssociaMetrics Premium provides access to all of ASAE’s benchmarking reports including

Association Compensation and Benefits Study and Association Operating Ratio Report — plus PDFs of additional benchmarking reports prepared by ASAE, including both volumes of Benchmarking in Association Management: Policies and Procedures ( Volume 1 or Volume 2 )  and Association Investment Policies, Practices, and Performance all at a reduced package price.
