Have you thought  about changing jobs and wondered what the job market was like in your area?  Have you considered relocating to another city and wonder what the job market was like?  The KPA is conducting a salary survey of paralegals working in the Commonwealth of Kentucky.  The last salary survey the KPA did was in 2012. 

The 2016 KPA Salary Survey is quick and easy to complete and your answers are completely confidential.  Our goal is 100% KPA membership participation.   Results are tallied independently by Survey Monkey and your name will not appear next to your answers. 2016 KPA Salary Survey Link is:  https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/kpasalarysurvey

Once you have completed the survey and clicked on “Done”, there will be a code word in the Thank You message.  Please email the code word to kpa.membership@gmail.com to be entered into a drawing for a $25 Amazon Gift Card.  We appreciate you taking the time to respond to the survey. Please feel free to share the link to the survey with other paralegals that are not KPA members.  As a benefit to our members, the results of the survey will only be provided to KPA Members in the Member’s Only Section of the KPA website.
