APGA Salary Survey

APGA is conducting our newly revamped biennial salary survey, which will collect salaries of both management and non-management personnel working for public gas systems.

The APGA Salary Survey has been collected and distributed for over 20 years. Starting in 2019, APGA made significant changes to the salary survey after consultation with members that we feel will improve participation, and in turn produce more accurate and meaningful results. The revamped survey will reduce the number of job titles to minimize confusion. Also, the APGA will be conducting the management and non-management surveys concurrently, and will do them biennially rather than annually.

All information received will be kept confidential. The APGA Salary Survey is a valuable tool and provided at no cost to participating APGA members. APGA did not retain a professional third-party to seek, obtain and verify the data. APGA does not follow-up with members to verify for accuracy. The results of this survey, which relies upon the voluntary submissions from members, simply represents the average salaries and ranges of salaries reported by those members who chose to participate. While not recommended to be the primary source for making staffing or personnel decisions, APGA Salary Survey is an important tool for members to use to determine if they are in the market or if a more accurate salary survey may be needed.

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to give us a call at (202) 464-2742 or email Simon Cook at scook@apga.org.
