Give Good Data Now = Get Good Data Later

by tbuegler

NegotiationMost ELCA congregations work on their budgets in the fall.  Program budgets…salaries…benefits…all get worked out in the fall.  So we’ve got a “great deal” for you.  Invest a little bit of time right now…probably no more than 5-15 minutes, and you’ll be better equipped for these important conversations in the fall.

Your friends and colleagues in ministry need your help!

The Network does an annual salary survey that provides data on salaries, insurance, pension, vacation time, reimbursement and more.  There’s even a section for volunteers to report how they are reimbursed for their expense and time.

And we take the data and we slice and dice it so you can compare by

  • Geographic region
  • Education level
  • Size of congregation
  • Years of experience
  • ELCA roster status
  • Gender and other categories

The salary survey is an incredibly helpful tool…it is consistently the most downloaded resource from the Network web site.  Every fall, congregations and Network members use this information to help them in their budget and salary conversations.

Right now, we are collecting the data.  We’ll be collecting it through April 20, 2017.  And quite simply, the more people who fill it out, the more helpful the data will be.  We hope to publish the data in mid May.

So please take a few minutes and help out your sisters and brothers in ministry!  Share your data.  And next fall, you’ll be better equipped.  Facts are your friends!

Take the survey now!
