Compensation collaboration

From the editor

Later this year, CU Management will publish highlights from the CUES Executive Compensation Survey. Last year we reported that the median CEO total compensation for all assets was $289,576, with a predictably large gap in pay for CEOs at the smallest credit unions and those at organizations with $1 billion or more in assets.

The survey provides solid data for credit unions to use when creating their compensation strategies. You can help by sharing your credit union’s information in both our executive and staff salary surveys before the deadline on March 31.
