PI GAMMA MU INTERNATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY U.S. SHADOW PRESIDENT POSITION

At the 2017 Triennial International Convention in Kansas City, Missouri student delegates will have the opportunity to run for and be elected to the position of our honor society's U. S. Shadow President. This will be for a three year term ending at our next convention.  This position was created prior to the 2010 Atlanta Convention to give someone a chance to evaluate the U. S. Presidents activities, policies and to give the president advice through writing a column in our Pi Gamma Mu International Honor Society Newsletter. The elected student should have an interest in politics, policy and leadership effectiveness. The Shadow President's column in our newsletter should give readers a better understanding of presidential policies.

Our first shadow president was Eric Knutson from Wayne State College, who later went to Law school and is now a practicing attorney in Nebraska. He was followed by Matthew Anderson of Lincoln University, who finished his doctorate degree in management at University of Phoenix. Both previous shadow presidents believed this position helped develop their writing skills, professional development and we enjoyed reading their columns. Gordon Mercer, then international president, interviewed Eric Knutson in a press release on President Obama.  The Pi Gamma Mu interview was covered by "U. S. Politics Today," "U. S. News Report: EIN," "Google News," and "Nebraska Political News." While the nature and expectations of the position will be covered in Kansas City at our convention, more information can be gained by calling Gordon Mercer, board member and past president, at 828-369-2693.
