Compensation for top sleuth at Mystery Writers Association cracked $100,000 in 2008

While some of the largest and most powerful financial institutions down on Wall Street were pushed to their deaths in 2008, events were a bit less tragic up on Broadway, where annual compensation for the administrative manager of the Mystery Writers Association (MWA) cracked $100,000. Check out the numbers, based on MWA’s recently-filed 2008 IRS Form 990:

• W-2/1099 compensation -- $81,693

• Deferred compensation/nontaxable benefits -- $24,131

• Total compensation -- $105,824

2008 marked the fifth consecutive year that MWA’s top sleuth received an increase in compensation, up from about $58,000 in 2004.
