STAYING THE SAME IS OKAY The average salary for all respondents in 2012 was $71,038, down from an average 2011 salary of $72,091. But nearly half (45 percent) of respondents report that they are satisfied with their current salary.

For those who received an increase in pay — 54 percent — 76 percent said it was due to a regular sal- ary increase. Of those who received pay raises, most reported raises of less than 5 percent. Fourteen percent expect pay increases later this year, and 52 percent expect pay increases in 2013.


SATISFIED WITH THEIR LOT The majority (66 percent) of respon- dents are satisfied with their specific jobs, and 79 percent said that they are satisfied with the meetings profession in general.


CONCENTRATED GROUPS Respondents work at locations throughout North America; they were most likely to be based in the Washing- ton, D.C. area (21 percent), followed by the Chicago market (14 percent) and the New York City region (6 percent). Fifty-seven percent of respondents live and work in other areas of North America.


A SLIGHT UPSWING The average salary change in 2012 over 2011: a 2.26-percent increase, about the same uptick as last year.
