As former CEO of the Medical Association of Georgia (MAG), Paul Shanor ran an organization that the ACP-ASIM ( American College of Physicians - American Society of Internal Medicine), said "[has] amassed an impressive track record of successful activism that other medical groups around the country are trying to emulate.
(March 2001 ACP-ASIM Observer)
Paul's experience in working with the multitude of issues involved in running an association is extensive.
For the Medical Association of Georgia, Paul led a formerly insignificant medical society to national prominence with national health policy impact.
He built MAG's significant legal efforts and was Chairman of The Litigation Center of the AMA and the State Medical Societies as well as a lobbyist who headed up one of the most successful medical association lobbying efforts in the country at both the national and state levels.He is experienced in press relations, and managed a multi-faceted organization with a limited budget.
Because of his prior work as an administrator in Public Health and as a senior aide with the State Senate, he is very knowledgeable about the intricate inter-relationship of the public and private sectors in the field of policy.
He is a superb problem solver.
In sum, few people have worked with as many aspects of an association as has Paul.
Paul can help CEO's and staff improve operations, internal/external communications, governmental relations, and legal operations.He can also help your Board of Directors understand the different roles of the Board and the staff, and how the two should work together to accomplish goals and directives.
In addition, he has had experience in bringing different interest segments of the organization together to work as one unit.
There are also times when a CEO leaves and an association wants time to examine candidates before choosing a new one.
Paul can take over in such a situation and immediately provide the stability needed during such a transition.
Having served in that capacity, he understands the strengths and weaknesses of a person acting in a interim leadership position.
In addition, some associations need a person to come in for a period of time and "right the ship" during a period of difficulty.
Paul took over such a situation and was able to transform the organization into one of the nations' most influential.
Mr Paul Shanor has been a friend and an associate for many years.
As Executive Director of the Medical Association of Georgiahe led the physicians of Georgia through many good and difficult times.His dedication to his duties as Executive Director, his respect for the physicians and their patients gained him the respect from all of us that worked with him.
I had the opportunity to work with Mr Shanor as a Delegate to the Board of Directors, First Vice President, Second Vice President, Treasurer, President elect, President and Past president, AMA Alternate Delegate and AMA Delegate.
Through all that time his dedication to the Medical Association of Georgia was absolute.

Paul was the CEO, attorney, and lobbyist for the Medical Association of Georgia, which was a national leader in physician advocacy.He helped develop, write and pass legislation as a legislative aide for the Georgia Senate Human Resources Committee, and worked for the Georgia Division of Public Health.
Among his legislative accomplishments with MAG was legislation that established the toughest Prompt Pay Standards for insurance companies in the nation, and the development of the strategy with the Insurance Department and the courts to have it enforced.
He also forced a ruling by the courts to make Georgia the first state in the country to mandate that physicians be notified what they would be paid by payors before they provided their services.
Paul was a founder and Chair of the AMA Litigation Center, supporting physician legal activities around the country.He also serves as Governmental Counsel for the Georgia Campus of the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine.Paul has a B.A. in Political Science and a Doctor of Law from Emory University.He is responsible for marketing through state and local physician associations, and acts as liaison to various medical boards and other regulatory entities.
I've had the pleasure of working with Paul Shanor for 14 years while he was Executive Director of the Medical Association of Georgia.
Among the talents Paul brings to any situation are keen analytical skills, scrupulous honesty, an approachable manner, and persistent good humor.
Paul combines a lawyer's appreciation of fundamental principles with a politician's understanding of practical realities.
As a result, he has the perspective necessary to build consensus among otherwise competing interests.
Paul would be a great asset to any organization where these characteristics are in demand.
