There are certainly scouting professionals that leave a lot to be desired. The Peter Principle applies in many cases at the SE level. This happens in lots of organizations including Congress for sure. There are many issues with professional scouters. One I've seen over and over is zero training in Customer Service and how to trust volunteers to do jobs. "No you can't collect the $5.00 fee for the Pinewood Derby...I have to sit here for 4 hours writing out $5 receipts to the 50 scouts who are here". The Executive Boards are neutered either by design or they just give up.
