Now you guys have made me think - and yes I hurt myself :)
Anyway, I have known a couple recent (young) pro scouters,
one being my nephew, who had to QUIT being a PRO scouter
becuase he could not afford to get married on what he was
earning. He is now selling insurance! (and doing OK)
Anyway, So it seems that while young PRO scouters are not
paid that well, I think most agree that you can at least live
on $300,000 - a decent wage!
I guess my guestion that has evolved now, is where did Jere Ratcliff
come from before he was the National Scout Exec? Was he a PRO scouter?
Was he a DE? Or a council Exec? How did he get selected and/or
qualified as the TOP PRO scouter?
Does his background and experience come from running a fairly large
organization? Or as a professional FUND raiser etc.
Does anyone really know his background? The reason that was reported
why he was carrying a gun really made me wonder as well.
