This free and confidential online salary survey will provide you with salary information based on your desired job title and geographic area.   This survey is an up-to-date continual research study.  Both members and non-members can now participate! Your participation is important and will improve the usefulness of our reports for you and your company. 

Our goal is to conduct the most extensive salary survey available to administrative professionals. Each submission is immediately added to the database and the totals are recalculated so that you always have the most up to date information. Although we have no way to ensure that the information submitted is absolutely valid, we do monitor all submissions and compare them to others in the same categories and delete any bad data. Due to limited responses in certain states, AEAP cannot produce estimates for every job title in every geographic area.
