What a great article! My wife (I use her logon) Kathy is a Senior D.E./
Multi Person in the Ventura California Council. Everything that the
article says is true. Tonight is a good example. Kathy is at a meeting,
and I'm home with a sick baby. She is out about 4-5 nights a weeks, and
every other weekend. The only way for me to see her was to become the
Dist. Advmnt. Chair! Yes, much of her job is "begging" for $$, and she
hate that part. In this council they do telemarketing for funds, try
getting hung up on 50 times a night, not fun. The Scout Excutive here
says if you're not working 70 hours a week, you're not doing your job.
You should probably plan on your Scouting professional career to be in
the area of about 3-5 years. If it last longer, great, but if not, you're
in the majority.
