Some telecomm salaries increase, others drop.

The median salary for a telecomm director at smaller colleges in the United States (budgets under $9.1 million) rose nearly 17%, according to the Association of College & University Telecomm Administrators (see accompanying chart).

Salaries at the smallest institutions rose from $22,328 to $26,078. That healthy boost helped push the overall median salary for chief telecomm administrators up almost 4% to $46,736 from last year's $45,000.

However, salaries in the upper three of the four categories tracked fell slightly.

The median salary for Chief Information System Officers at all schools was much healthier--$57,872, up 5% from 1991-92s figure of $54,994.

Speaking about ACUTA, their annual conference and exposition is being held later on this month at the Hilton San Francisco, July 26 to 30. For attendance and registration information, contact the ACUTA office at 606-252-2882.

From the Windy City

The Chicago Industrial Communications Association elected the following officers and directors for 1992-1993: President Steven Willuweit, Household International; Vice President Kathy Hoekstra, Material Service Corp.; Secretary Vince Donahue, Jr., Governors State University; Treasurer John Prette, Office Management Advisors; Membership Director Beverly Stanley, Cook County Central Services; Publicity, Mary Holtz, Leo Burnett USA; Directors, John Gacek, Bear, Stearns & Co. and Ruth Soskin-Nesher, Chicago Board of Trade.

The Robert C. Hagglund Award was presented to Mark L. Gershien, vice president of sales for Metropolitan Fiber Systems.

Lois Wander, past president of CICA and past conference chairman of the Mid-western Telecomm Conference, was appointed permanent representative to TAC (Telecomm Associations Council). Lois will continue to represent 13 associations which make up the MTC as she has done over the last three years.

Membership idea

I commend the TCA (Tele-Communications Association) for enhancing their new directory by adding a geographical list of their members.

With this addition, the directory is organized by member last name, company name, listing by chapter with company and member(s) name and geography. In addition, there is a calendar of events by chapter, such as monthly meetings, chapter events and corporate activities.

SETA enhances format

The 1992 Southeastern Telecomm Association conference and equipment expo will be held at the Walt Disney Dolphin Hotel, Orlando, Fla., Aug. 31 - Sept.2.

Enough of a good thing is enough. Betty Bird at SETA's Business Office tells me that she can't last as long as I indicated the 1992 SETA meeting would be running. Gremlins got into the typesetting in the chart in the May issue where I reported all major user groups' expo dates.

The newly structured educational sessions are planned around the theme "Opportunities Through Change." Keynote speakers for the conference will be Rocky Johnson, chairman and CEO of GTE Service Corp., and Jim Norman, president of Racal Datacom.

Low-cost, high quality tutorial sessions are built around four tracks: fundamentals of telecomm, planning and design, enterprise networking, and management concerns.

Around the circuit
