I agree Cheryl. I have been trying to research salaries for North Carolina
or the Mid-Atlantic Region. I have been told that not to expect a top salary
of more than $39,000 for positions in law firms. I am wondering how true
this is for my area.

Hi John:
I am the Records Officer (just me) for the City of Texas City.  For the past
year, I have been trying to get the City to recognize the standard of pay
for
Record Managers.  With it being very difficult to actually produce a very
recent
study on salaries for records managers, whether government or corporate
business, I ultimately provided our HR and Finance Dept. with the 1998 ARMA
Survey.  As I understand, ARMA indicates it is just to expensive to do this
survey.  In an effort to get Record Managers recognized, the Quorum Group,
who
is responsible for salary survery for all types of entities, especially
governmental agencies, is in the process of conducting their 2002 survey and
I
provided Mr. Brau at Quorum with a job description listed in the ARMA
survey.
Of course, everyone's positions are little different but I figures it
wouldn't
hurt.  As far as I know, the survey is still open, so if anyone out there
wishes
to participate, go to www.TheQuorumGroup.com.

Other than ARMA, I found it very difficult to find Record Managers even
listed
as a general title, whether is was under City Secretary's Offices,
Libraries,
etc.  I found everything else but that.

Sincerely,
Cheryl R. Welch
Records Management Officer
