I was hired 8 years ago to be the meetings manager for a small, professional association. We are a small staff and often have to do tasks that don't necessarily fall in our job description. Over time, I was given more and more secretarial type work to do. Recently my boss told me that he wants to add "Executive Assistant" to my title since I was already doing most of the work anyways and he thought I deserved the recognition. I specifically asked if this means that my work load would increase and was told it would not. Now I am a few weeks into this and my responsibilities HAVE increased and I feel the role that I was originally hired for 8 years ago is being put on the back burner (even though the tasks are still important and need to get done).
I want to talk to my boss and tell him that I no longer want this title and just want to go back to doing what I was originally hired for (and I really enjoy it), but I don't know how to approach him without sounding like I'm just complaining. It's not that I am overworked, its just that I do not enjoy these secretarial type tasks. How should I approach this with him?
