BSA: The POLARIS Method in Open Discussion - Program Posted September 17, 2018 3 minutes ago, an_old_DC said: My guess is it means fewer low-level professionals with the expectation that district and council volunteers will pick up the slack. Maybe it does, but my council just (last year) completely reorganized the DE-level professional staff, supposedly to provide MORE professional staff (but I get the feeling that the people newly hired into this new structure are getting significantly less pay than the DE's.) Essentially each "group" of 3 districts has 4 executives handling different areas for all 3 districts, such as membership, development, unit service and one other that slips my mind. Those 4 report to an FSD. No more "DE" handling everything for one district. But each district still has its own volunteer structure. It took them about 2 years to transition to that. So now they are going to reorganize AGAIN?
