Did this happen in your council?

When your council went through the merger, did all or most of the council employees get fired? I am in Alaska, so we were the last to go through this, just happened in October. They have a new CEO and board members etc. But what has really distressed me is the change in employees at the council. They fired several in October and rehired new people to do their jobs. Then they are firing 2 more this month. One is the product sales person--how stupid is it to fire her now when QSP really hasn't ended (we haven't received the checks and incentives yet--but more importantly cookies start in January!
The people they have replaced had many years of experience and dedication to GS & it really annoys me. Our council wasn't one that was bad or bankrupt or anything. I wrote an email in protest to the new CEO when she fired the person who helps all the troops recruit leaders, boost gs girl memberships (called a member services specialist here). I knew her for several years, she's been there more than the 8 years I've been involved w/GS and was very dedicated & worked many many nights going to parent meetings with school coordinators trying to set things up.
I'm just really frustrated & disheartened at this point. My 7th grade Cadettes were program aides with the day camp & know & bonded with the camp director there. They are looking forward to that again this summer. What are they going to do fire her in May just before camp starts? I figure that will be the plan & the camp director for overnight camp will also be fired about then. That seems par for the course so far.
