It’s getting close to that time of year again and the 2008 Adaptistration Compensation Reports are on track to come out a little early this year. For those new to the reports, the articles present the most recent compensation information on nearly 300 executive director, music director, concertmaster, and base musician positions throughout 76 ICSOM, IGSOBM, and ROPA orchestral ensembles.

New for 2008 will be a completely redesigned print edition
containing detailed compensation data from the 1999/00 through the
2005/06 seasons (seven seasons!). In addition to the standard
comprehensive compensation tables which present information
alphabetically by ensemble, the new print edition will contain an
executive summary for the most recent season allowing users to scan
high-level data sorted by criteria such as budget size, compensation
level, conference, and group – an oft requested feature from current
Although all of these enhancements will make the print and
online edition of the 2008 reports better than ever, I want to know
which components you think could make the report as useful as possible.
