  • Does anyone work at a council currently seeking a DE

    Long time no post. Im wondering if anyone knows a coucil currently looking. I prefer in the southern region but open. I still have had no luck myself.

    No nibbles?

    What kind of activities are you doing in you district or council to gain experience and recognition?

    The current DE for my district was the Program Director at a council summercamp in 2011. He was hired as a DE at the end of summer camp.

    In our council, we are concentrating on rechartering right now. A volunteer might find a role in assisting units in completing the rechartering process.

    In January, planning for the FOS campaign goes into full swing. I would suppose that there is an unlimited need for district and council volunteers to make that program work effectively.

    If you can update your resume showing current experience with rechartering, Friends of Scouting and recruiting in the spring, I would imagine council decision makers would be impressed by your experience and motivation.

      SP has some good advice.

      I know when I was looking for a DE job, I shadowed my DE, helped do some recruiting, etc.

      I was also on the district committee as the OA chapter adviser, so I was doing stuff on the district level.

      Good luck.

        jgood, West Central Florida Council has one DE slot open and wil probably have another open soon. I'm not sure what experience they are looking for in a recruit. Council is headquartered in Seminole, FL.

            In the Northeast Region:
            Patriots' Path Council (Florham Park, NJ) has two openings

            http://signs-up.ppbsa.org/2012/11/21/entry-level-district-executive-non-profit/

            Last I checked, my home council, Theodore Roosevelt Council (Nassau County, Long Island, New York) had openings as well. That said, I'm not sure how anyone could afford to rent a place on Long Island on a DE's salary.

              Yes, my council is currently looking for at least two DE's.
              Send me an email and I'll send you some contact info.
              We are in S9.

                I will try to get a hold of someone to find out if I can help with any of their programs. If I can get them to return my calls or emails.

                  My sources within Alpha Phi Omega have alerted me that the council in/near Zanesville OH is looking to hire a DE by January.

                    I have heard that the newly formed South GA Council is looking for a DE for a newly created District. They are looking to have someone on board in January.

                      Trans-Atlantic is short DEs, but I'm not sure they are actively seeking to replace them. Teh pay doesn't come close to covering what is needed to live on the economy.

                        While West Central Florida is still short a DE for months now, it seems that the "powers above" will not provide candidtaes to interview. Guess their goal of merging out the Council becomes easier when they can use the lack of professionals against the Council in it's performance.
