Welcome to the...

The West-Central Ohio Chambers Wage, Salary & Benefits Survey is a cooperative effort of the Darke County, Celina/Mercer County, Preble County, Southwest Auglaize County, and Wapakoneta Area chambers. This cooperative effort of neighboring chambers, not only promotes a closer relationship amongst the chambers, but, more importantly, offers the advantage of sharing our resources to provide better programming and resource information for our members.

Survey results are expected to be available early August.  The results will be distributed free of charge to those who participate.  Chamber member businesses that do not participate will have to purchase the survey results at $50.00/copy.  Non-member costs will be $100.00.  All completed forms are confidential and respondents will not be identified in the results.

Please take a few minutes to complete the survey...your input is critically important and your participation will go a long way in providing the type of comparative data you need to manage your business more effectively.  If hard copy works best for you, simply complete the form below and mail it to the address noted.  However, if you do complete the survey electronically, the information you submit this year will be saved electronically and next year you will only have to review and update the information that you submit. 

Please complete the survey by Saturday, July 11.  Thank you for your input, and we look forward to including your company's data in the survey.

A special "Thank You" to the Wage & Salary Survey Team for preparing the survey.
