League Compensation

The League compensates employees consistent with Internal Revenue Service guidelines for nonprofit organizations. According to the IRS, "Reasonable compensation" is the amount ordinarily paid for:

  • For like services
  • By like enterprises (whether taxable or tax-exempt)
  • Under like circumstances

Current compensation ranges and the comparable positions used to set them are listed below.  League staff salaries are determined annually, and there is no automatic inflator for years of service or educational achievements.  No officers or board members receive any compensation for their service beyond reasonable travel reimbursement.
