Time To Think About Compensation Resources


By: Drew McManus

In: Catch All

Within the parameters of nonprofit performing arts, compensation can be a sticky subject, especially when it comes to those at the top of the pay scale. Fortunately, transparency goes a long way and you have multiple resources for researching current trends.

An article I posted here at ArtsHacker in 2016 is every bit as relevant now as it was then:

Looking For Some Nonprofit Compensation Resources?

If you’re looking for something more readily available and up to date, I recently published a series of articles at Adaptistration.com that examines the compensation trends among orchestra executives, music directors, and concertmasters at more than 65 professional U.S. orchestras.

In addition to my consulting business, I'm also the Principal of Venture Industries Online but don’t let that title fool you into thinking I'm just a tech geek. I bring 20+ years of global broad-based arts consulting experience to the table to help clients break the cycle of choosing one-size-fits-none solutions and instead, deliver options allowing them to get ahead of the tech curve instead of trying to catch up by going slower. With the vision of legacy support strategy and the delights of creative insights, my mission is to deliver a sophisticated next generation technology designed especially for the field of performing arts. The first step in that journey began in 2010 when The Venture Platform was released, a purpose-designed managed website development solution designed especially for arts organizations and artists. For fun, I write a daily blog about the orchestra business, provide a platform for arts insiders to speak their mind, lead a team of intrepid arts pros to hack the arts, lead an arts business incubator, and love a good coffee drink.
