2015 San Antonio Nonprofit
Wage and Benefit Survey  

Every year we receive inquiries about appropriate wages for nonprofit staff. 

Werling Associates, Inc. would like to invite you to participate in the 2015 San Antonio Not-For-Profit Wage and Benefit Survey.

The survey is sponsored by the San Antonio Area Foundation and funded by the Kronkosky Charitable Foundation.

Werling Associates, Inc. has conducted a nonprofit survey in the San Antonio area since 1998. Last year’s survey included data for 99 jobs from 93 agencies. The final report of the survey will include a thorough analysis of job-specific compensation data, thus providing organizations with the information necessary to make reliable and equitable financial decisions.

All survey participants will receive a FREE copy of the final report.

The survey will be published in June.  Please contact one of the Werling consultants at (210) 697-8232 if you have any questions or need additional information.



 Member Training 

BoardEffect is an online portal that streamlines board work and provides directors easy access to important information. Area Foundation Membership includes the use of this tool, which is accessible via computer or a free iPad app.  We encourage members to take advantage of this resource, because:

  • Creating your board packet becomes a simple task of dropping files into an online agenda, customized to fit the order of your board meetings;
  • Organizing meetings becomes simple with BoardEffect's RSVP tool -- administrators survey board members on dates that work for their schedules and then select the most popular date with one click;
  • Committee and board collaboration becomes streamlined with online discussion, live chat and voting tools.

We offer free training for members to learn how BoardEffect can help your board communicate and collaborate effectively and improve efficiency.  Training includes an overview and tour of the portal, tips for management and administration of BoardEffect, and a Q&A/practice session.

Our next member training date is Thursday, May 21, 2015 | 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm

 IT -  SA Technology Seminar - Thursday, June 11, 2015

Please join the San Antonio Area Foundation and the San Antonio Chapter of Microsoft Channel Partners as we host our 2nd Annual IT-SA - A Full Day Seminar about Technology for Nonprofits. 

This annual one-day conference is for nonprofit staff looking to integrate technology best practices and new ideas.

This year’s theme is Building Your Technical Savvy, and we are offering two concurrent tracks – one for information managers and one for techies.  We are excited to bring Idealware to San Antonio as IT-SA’s keynote and management track workshop leader. Idealware is a national authority that provides resources to help nonprofits make smart software and information technology decisions in support of their mission.  Reserve your spot today and join your nonprofit colleagues on June 11th for a day filled with technology trainings, resource briefings, and innovative techniques to build (or refine) your organization’s technology systems.  This will be a unique opportunity to learn how to boost efficiencies across your organization and prioritize innovation to springboard your team’s success… and did we mention there will be lots of PRIZES*!
