AIA’s biennial Compensation Survey, last conducted in 2017, is the benchmark for the profession and a valued resource for firms and practitioners. If you received an invitation to participate, we ask that you respond; your reply is vital for the success of this study. If you are a firm leader who has not received an invitation and would like to participate, please send an email to the AIA Economics & Market Research team at compensationsurvey@aia.org.

As a participating firm, you will receive a complimentary PDF copy of the complete survey report when it is released. We thank you in advance for your participation. As you are completing the survey and in reviewing compensation, don’t forget the resources available through the AIA Risk Management Program and the AIA Trust.

As a reminder, the AIA Code of Ethics expresses member’s commitment to “provide their colleagues and employees with a fair and equitable working environment, compensate them fairly, and facilitate their professional development. (Ethical Standard 5.1)” Firms seeking to enhance their practice implementation of this standard may find the “Guides for Equitable Practice”a particularly useful tool. Chapter 3 looks specifically at compensation, but many management and work culture principles are explored as well.  Further installments of these guides will be released in June and November of this year.
