Survey (?)

on Sept 9th I received a blast email from ARMA HQ announcing that I would be
receiving an invitation to participate in a RIM Salary Survey. Since ARMA
has close to 11,000 members I see a survey of their membership as being
representative of the profession.. There will be a report issued in January
2010 titled "Records and Information Management Salary and Compensation
Survey Report" .

I don' t remember, but I believe the latter ie ISP. of note the email
annoncement stated that "data will be reported in the aggregate only"

the question as I see it is "was the survey a sampling of the membership
based upon x number from each geographical location? or was it sent out to
all members?"

The key is for individuals to do a search of the email folders to see if 1)
they received the "coming soon" email, and 2) did they receive the survey. I
did not retain a copy of the survey email otherwise i could give you the
date.. But it looks like the survey was sent out shortly after 'coming soon"
