Nannies Needed to Take INA Salary Survey

INA is asking all nannies to participate in their 2008 Salary Survey. This survey can be accessed through the INA Home Page. Responses are confidential and results will be unveiled at the INA Annual Conference in Dallas. The results are then released to the public - including parents, press and industry businesses and professionals. The more nannies that take the survey means that more information is collected about trends in our industry today.

I urge all nannies to take the survey and provide much needed input on today's nannies. Deadline is February 28, 2009.
