Demographic Information
Thanks for checking out The Community Careers & Compensation 2015 survey.

The survey looks at key roles, skills and compensation in the community domain. You can participate if you work with communities in any capacity - from a volunteer moderator role to a VP of Community - and anywhere in between. The results will inform the discussion of communities and community professionals across all industries and use cases, and provide value for you as a community professional. 

The survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete - average has actually been about 6 minutes. We appreciate your time and participation - and look forward to publishing the research findings this fall!

If you have any questions about the survey - please contact us at research@communityroundtable.com, and to learn more about the Community Careers & Compensation research and view the 2014 Community Manager Salary Survey, visit communityroundtable.com.
