Association Support

shanor.net [cached]

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 Georgia he 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.

Healthcare Mediation

Paul Shanor has negotiated with the government and businesses for over 25 years in healthcare, representing governmental agencies, physicians and hospitals.
His respect is such that he is the only person to represent both the state hospital association and the state physician association. Paul has a firm understanding of the issues and the personalities involved in healthcare. In addition, he is a lawyer who is trained in mediation and a former CEO who understands healthcare. Paul is a member the American Health Lawyers ADR Panel, as well as, a member of the panel of Global Dispute Resolution, LLC Ive 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 lawyers appreciation of fundamental principles with a politicians 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.

I have known Paul Shanor since 1977 when we both worked for the Public Health Division of the Georgia Department of Human Resources.
Paul worked in the Office of Primary Care and did an outstanding job of allocating state resources to improve access to health care for Georgians. He also served as the liaison to the General Assembly. After working for the Georgia Senate, Paul left state government in 1987 to assume the role of Executive Director of the Medical Association of Georgia (MAG). Under Pauls leadership, MAG was transformed from a reactive doctors club to a proactive, responsive organization that was viewed in all quarters as representative of the states physicians. The organization, under Pauls direction, was particularly effective as the doctors voice in state government. Both the executive office and the General Assembly looked to MAG in general and to Paul specifically, for the position of Georgia doctors on all health-related issues before state government. In this role, Paul was particularly effective. I know this was the case because I was appointed by then Governor Zell Miller to be the states Public Health Director in 1991. This appointment would not have occurred without Paul Shanors support. During the three years that I was in this role, Paul and I met frequently with the Governor, members of the General Assembly, and others to assure that state health programs had the support of both the public and private sectors, support critical to their success.

Paul Shanor and I have been friends and associates for over twenty years.
He came to work for me in 1983 when I chaired the Human Resources Committee of the State Senate and took a position as executive aide to the committee. In that position which he held until 1987, Paul guided my legislation through committees as well as through both houses of the legislature. He also worked with the members of the committee on issues of concern to them or on issues before the committee. Paul was in charge of preparing our committee for each committee meeting and committee hearing. During this time, Paul was immersed in the legislative process on a daily basis and became an expert in both the process of the Georgia legislature and the substance of the legislative issues we dealt with. The bulk of our work centered on health issues, and Paul became the authoritative voice. He was sought out by legislators for advice and his advice was relied upon. In 1987, Paul left his position with the state to accept a position as Executive Director of the Medical Association of Georgia. Paul and I worked together on health issues during his years at MAG until I left public service in 1999. While I was serving Georgia as Lieutenant Governor, Paul was a close confidant of my staff and mine and I depended on him for guidance on health issues that were so important to the state. I remember specifically seeking his advice about PeachCare, a health insurance program for children that has become a model for the nation. I do not feel that Paul has received the credit he deserves for the multitude of health-related laws that he has strongly influenced. That is due in part to the fact that he does not seek credit but is satisfied to simply make good things happen. One of Pauls great assets was the keen legal mind that he brought to his analysis of legislation. He worked with legislative counsel on the writing of hundreds of bills. I have personal knowledge that many of his suggestions about the legal aspects of bill drafting were heeded by the legislative counsel and incorporated in the final drafts of important bills that eventually became law. In his position at MAG, Paul brought the organization out of the shadows into national prominence. Under his leadership, MAG was recognized as a national leader among state medical organizations. MAG reached the pinnacle of its political influence under Paul, a pinnacle from which it has since receded. I count my days working with Paul Shanor as a blessing to my career. He is not only smart, but he has rock-solid integrity. I have never once known him to do anything in his professional or private life that was not a credit to him and his family to which he is very devoted.
