How to Negotiate Your Salary

Our top-rated session year after year at our annual conference has returned! Come out to learn about negotiating your salary from Valerie Arendt.

Nonprofit organizations recognize that their effectiveness and ability to meet their mission is dependent upon the quality of their staff. They cannot rely on finding qualified people who are willing to work for less than market rate salaries. This session will discuss steps to negotiate during the job offer and how to advocate for a promotion or raise.

This year, YNPN’s professional development events are all based on our Competency Model. The Competency Model consists of four pillars that reflect the skills we’ve found through research that emerging nonprofit leaders need to be successful: Effective Communication, Personal Management, Leadership Development, and Technical Skills. Each quarter we will host a professional development event that hits each one of these competencies. This month’s event will focus on Effective Communication: Furthering Your Career.
