Here’s the deal. I am midlevel management at a pretty large national nonprofit. I’ve been in the same position for many years. I’ve always been somewhat involved in sales (ads, sponsorships, exhibit hall space) but it was never my direct responsibility. I was more in an advisory role.
For the past 2 years we had someone in my department who was solely dedicated to this. She didn’t work out (that’s a whole other topic) and the executive director asked me to fill in temporarily until a permanent solution was decided on.
It turns out I am really good at this and have sold more in one month than she did in 2 years. The exec dir is very happy and everyone seems to be hinting this will stay with me permanently, which I am fine with. Two minor things I manage will be transferred to another staff member whose job was rearranged a bit.
I am still responsible for about 80% of my usual work. So I’d like to bring up a salary adjustment with my boss. Any suggestions on how to go about this with her? This seems like such a no-brainer, but I don’t want to blow this and might be overlooking the right strategy.
