by Paul Mueller, Senior Information Development Manager, NetIQ Corporation

One hundred eighteen members completed the STC Houston 2003 Salary and Chapter Survey. We are busy slicing and dicing the results to find better ways to serve you and meet the growing needs of our industry. Over the next few months, we will continue to analyze the survey results and create plans for this upcoming year.

Here we present a few of the results to whet your appetite. In the future, a summary report of the results will be made available.
