TREC 2019 Salary Report

TREC 2019 Salary Survey

The TREC Salary Survey is now CLOSED. Thanks to all who participated in this year’s survey! TREC dedicates itself to serving environmental organizations through offering services and resources to strengthen their effectiveness. We believe that providing competitive and equitable compensation is an essential part of recognizing the most valuable assets in your organization, your people.

The 2019 TREC Salary Report will be released in mid-October. If you completed TREC’s 2019 Salary Survey your organization will receive the 2019 Salary Report for free. We value your time, and the report is our thank you for contributing to this comprehensive report on nonprofit environmental compensation in North America! If you did not complete the survey, the Report will be available for purchase for $199.00 USD on TREC’s website.

The Report is an essential tool for your organization and will help you to:

  • Attract and retain employees by ensuring you are equitable and competitive with other organizations based on size, budget, and location;
  • Update your 2020 budget with competitive salaries;
  • Strengthen your 990 by using comparable salary data in compensation setting practices;
  • Stay current with compensation trends in your organization’s niche;
  • Build data to advocate for more equitable compensation across the environmental movement.
