Thank you to the more than 4,000 IPs who completed the APIC MegaSurvey: State of the IP Profession during the summer of 2015! With your help, APIC obtained key data on the current state of professionals serving in the role of an IP. The most comprehensive survey of its kind, the APIC MegaSurvey: State of the IP Profession collected crucial information related to IP demographics, organizational structure, practice and competencies, and compensation.
