I searched the website to try to find out who in the ARRL leadership gets a paid salary and was not able to find that information. Also, are the salaries paid available. As a member of a non-profit organization, I think I should have access to this information.

I found it!

http://www.arrl.org/arrl-by-laws
12. All volunteer Officers, Directors and Vice Directors shall serve without compensation in any form. The League shall reimburse their reasonable and prudent administrative expenses and travel expenses in accordance with the travel and expense policies adopted by the Board of Directors. This section shall not be construed to prevent the employment for agreed compensation, of the Secretary and the Treasurer, by the League in other capacities.

The ARRL has a large "field organization" which is all volunteer. However, there is a paid staff of some 100 employees mostly based at Newington. There is a lot of information in the ARRL Annual Report, which you might read. http://www.arrl.org/annual-reports All nonprofits (above a certain level) are required to file IRS Form 990 annually, which has additional information. The 990's are probably available on the web, but I can't give a link.

I think the bylaws are a bit misleading as they state:

"All volunteer Officers, Directors and Vice Directors shall serve without compensation in any form."

The key word is "volunteer". That must be interpreted to mean that non-volunteer officers do receive compensation. I suggest those interested review the IRS Form 990 where the CEO, CFO, CDO, COO, CTO, Treasurer, and Editorial and Production Manager all received salaries of over $100,000 pre year except the Treasurer who received over $50,000 for a 5 hours work per week. This information is from the 2011 IRS Form 990:

In today's corporate world, those management salaries would be considered low given the size of the organization.

Roughly $200 per hour is not uncommon for a good Treasurer/Financial Manager with over 30 years of service. Part of his job was to "...authorized and directed to purchase and/or sell and/or deal in any and all securities and financial instruments for the Client, including the power to deliver, accept delivery of, pledge, endorse, surrender and direct the transfer of record title of any assets beneficially owned by the Client for any purpose...". Part of his job was to keep ARRL 's financial holdings strong and increasing. i.e. "know when to hold them and know when to fold them"
