Correction Notice – Member Support for Tuition Waivers
Please note that an incorrect figure regarding Member support for tuition waivers (in the Salary, Benefits and Retirement Survey) was accidentally cited. CORRECTION: 76.43% of survey respondents answered “yes” to the question, “Would you like to see a tuition waiver benefit provided?”. While this confirms a very robust level of support, we apologize for providing inaccurate information at the meeting.
