Do you think the title EA adequately represents your role? If not, what would you change your title to and why?

Why is that funny? That is essentially the level I am operating at. In charge of budgets, staffing, emploee onboarding, company events, etc.

No I don't think me SEA title captures all that I do. Granted some EA roles do. I often partner with the executives discussing operation people issues Bus development and etc...i am told I function more of a strategic partner. I believe some tech companies have their EA tilted as strategic business partner.

No, I don't feel it does. I believe some type of coordinator title would be more appropriate, considering our role. We're making it all happen--a lot more than just "assisting". Thoughts?
