Most top ACOG executives received pay raises ranging from
nearly 4% to 5% this year, with ACOG President Billy Payne
getting a 6% raise giving him a $669,112 annual salary, the
highest salary of any head of a nonprofit organization in the
nation, according to the ATLANTA CONSTITUTION. Payne was hired
in '90 at the salary of $500,000 which has increased "just more
than" 6% per year. His raise was the minimum as dictated by his
contract. ACOG COO A.D. Frazier also got his minimum raise,
making his annual salary $473,500. Those getting larger raises,
as approved by ACOG, include Scott Anderson, manager of Games
services such as ticketing and housing, who got an 11% raise to
$250,000, and CFO Pat Glisson who got a 14% raise to $200,000
