Attract & Retain Talent

Talent Development You Can Trust

Part of MSAE’s mission focuses on helping associations attract, develop and retain top talent. We can be your resource for executive search services and finding the right person for your open positions. Let us bring you the top candidates for your selection.

Compensation & Benefits Report

Since 1980, MSAE has been Michigan’s source for association benchmarking data.  In conjunction with an independent entity, we survey members to gather data on benefits and compensation for chief executive officers and other association staff. The result is an easily used report that features data specific to not-for-profit organizations in the state of Michigan and an additional, 65-page report of national not-for-profit data for supplemental benchmarking.

The 2019 Compensation & Benefits Survey Report is available. Questions? Contact  Donna Oser, CAE.

Real-Time Dynamic Salary Benchmarking

Beginning in 2020, MSAE is pleased to unveil a new tool for members! In partnership with the Association Societies Alliance (ASA) and Dynamic Benchmarking, LLC, MSAE is offering access to an online, real-time compensation survey and benchmarking platform for executives of professional, trade, and service-centric associations and nonprofits. The new data gathering and reporting platform is the next evolution of MSAE's Compensation & Benefits Survey.

Executive Search Service

Integrity. Quality. Results. MSAE’s Executive Search Service provides associations and other not-for-profit organizations with a true, holistic approach at the time of transition – the ability to hire the best person to move the organization toward its strategic direction.  

Selection of the chief staff executive is one of the most important responsibilities of the board of directors. This individual not only oversees the organization's scope of work but also sets the culture and determines the major decisions to keep moving the organization ahead.  It is essential that the selection process provide the next best leader for your organization. 

Let us help. For information about Executive Search or to discuss executive transition and succession, contact  Donna Oser, CAE .

Interim Executive Director Service

MSAE can help you locate an interim director for your organization, either as part of the executive search, or as a stand-alone service. We maintain a list of possible directors and can set up interviews for immediate service.
