Red arrow Participate in URMIA's 2015 Salary Benchmark Survey

URMIA is proud to announce the return of its Salary Benchmark Survey! Conducted by Dr. Christine Eick and Dr. Lee Colquitt of Auburn University and Dr. David Sommer of St. Mary's University, this survey not only measures the salaries of risk managers, but also the size of risk management departments, where risk management reports, which insurance programs risk management is responsible for, and which business units report to risk management.

This survey is being conducted at no cost to URMIA or its members, and URMIA members will each get a free copy of the survey results. Help Dr. Eick, Dr. Colquitt, and Dr. Sommer further URMIA's mission and build the value of URMIA membership by participating in the 2015 URMIA Salary Benchmark Survey today.
