When I was a DE way back in the dark ages we used to recruit people a
different way. One technique was to hand a possible volunteer three pieces
of paper. The first had a small paragraph on what the job was. The second
had a paragraph on the time needed per day, week and year. The second was
the requirements. The last requirement was recruit your own replacement.
A DE cannot recruit all the people needed to fill the District jobs, let
alone all the pack, troop and post jobs. However, they are also failing to
train people in that important function. Who best to answer someone's
questions about a volunteer job on who, what, where how much, what time and
why should I then the person moving on.
If you want to get out of a job as a volunteer, find someone else to do the
job for you.
