North Dakota United’s Finances

These are new benchmark figures for North Dakota United. The increases in membership and revenue are due to the North Dakota Education Association merging with the AFT affiliate in the state. We can expect membership to remain stable at or around 10,000, but the merged organization is reliant on national subsidies to a relatively high degree.

Total membership – 10,514, up 1,538 members

Total revenue – $4 million (73.2% came from member dues), up $1.1 million

Surplus – $352,000

Net assets – $2.2 million

Total staff – 24

Staff salaries and benefits – $2.1 million

Highest paid employee – Armand Tiberio, former executive director – $153,825 base salary

Highest paid contractor – None received more than $100,000
