Stax was pleased to partner with The Association of Art Museum Directors (AAMD) on the release of AAMD’s 2017 Salary Survey, which looks at salaries and benefits data covering the period from 2011–2016, and includes responses from 219 museums in the United States, Canada, and Mexico, covering more than 50 different staff positions.
“For anyone running a museum, on the board of directors or a patron, the data is critical to understanding your most valuable asset—the people required to ensure the vibrancy of the institution,” said Rafi Musher, Founder and CEO of Stax Inc. “The trends highlight an industry recognition of the increasing complexity of running a museum and making the arts available to the public, bringing in more funding, and the team you need to make it all happen. This is shown in the data through the growth in compensation for employees in operations, marketing and curatorial positions.”
“It’s been terrific to partner with the people at AAMD and support them in bringing more insights to the arts community.”
AAMD is making the full report available for free as a service to the museum field and museum professionals. You can read the full report here.
