"why does the ceo make over a 1/2 a million a year?"
Tell me about it .... It's for-profit firms, "commercial fundraisers", which slide under DNC regulation. My stock question to all the InfoCision clients goes like this:
What could you have accomplished with the ten million dollars the InfoCision chairman spent in 2008 to slap his company name on the new University of Akron stadium for two decades?

why does the ceo make over a 1/2 a million a year?
From a Connecticut Dept. of Consumer Protection report dated 16 March 2010:
"... THE LEUKEMIA & LYMPHOMA SOCIETY, INC. of WHITE PLAINS, NY will be conducting a telephone solicitation campaign in Connecticut beginning 3/28/2010 and ending 2/28/2011.
THE LEUKEMIA & LYMPHOMA SOCIETY, INC. has hired INFOCISION MANAGEMENT CORPORATION of AKRON, OH to conduct the campaign. According to the fundraising contract filed with the State, THE LEUKEMIA & LYMPHOMA SOCIETY, INC. will receive a minimum of 0 per cent of the gross funds raised from this solicitation."
Infocision is based in Akron, Ohio and routinely runs aggressive campaigns for charity groups American Cancer, American Diabetes, American Heart, American Lung, Leukemia/Lymphoma, and March of Dimes. Recent tactics include predictive dialing and the use of multiple rotating numbers to frustrate caller blocking. Charities are among the FTC DNC exemptions, even if third party for-profit firms are involved in collection.
I called it back - went through an automated system to remove my number.....we'll see if it worked.
the Leukemia society calls every day, several times a day, from two different numbers...I will never answer!

i got a response from him
took Nancy's advise and emailed Nancy Klein at lls.org. Thanks, Nancy #1!!! Hope Nancy #2 takes requested action.
I figured out how to find these people and sent them an email complaining -- they said they'd take me off their list. If they get enough emails, maybe they'll STOP this.

My email to Nancy Klein got a result; the others are people she cc’d on her answer to me.
The Leukemia Society (if that is who it is) is calling using 3 different area codes and numbers.
Called today 1:20pm, rang four times and hung up. Left no voicemail.
