Here in Circle Ten (Second or third largest Council depending on
the day of week) we have had much higher turnover than that. In my district
alone, we have changed senior DE's twice, and junior DE's have come and gone
rather rapidly (We have a HUGE district, and hence two DE's that stay busy)
. I would expect this - starting DE's don't exactly set the
world on fire with their salries, and work more or less continuously (meetings
meetings, meetings). Long hours + low pay = high turnover. Likewise I would
expect the turnover rate to be higher in the largst Councils, where the
political infighting and competition are at their most fevered pitch. I think
of this as a good thing, since the DE's that last are either excellent,
dedicated folks, or complete drooling idiots. Of course, having Irving right
across the way doesn't do anything to calm any tension :) I've always
suspected that National sends two distinct types of Pro's here - Up-and-comers,
and slow movers.
