Genevieve Fishman Named Next Panhellenic Council President

The Panhellenic Council elected Genevieve Fishman as the new Panhel President for 2018 Wednesday evening. Fishman is a junior and the current president of Alpha Chi Omega sorority.

“To be officially elected Panhellenic President is a true honor,” Fishman said. While my nomination and election were unexpected, I have dedicated my time to Panhellenic since my freshman year and I never planned on stopping my involvement. I will continue to work tirelessly to improve this community on such a greater scale.”

At the time of the original election, only one candidate was slated for the position, and she did not obtain the 51 percent of chapter delegate votes needed to win the election. Panhel held a special election Wednesday evening to re-open nominations for president.

The current Panhel executive board announced in May all of its members will stay in office until after the spring 2018 formal recruitment and bid day process to ensure the first deferred recruitment runs smoothly. However, current Panhel president Amanda Saper said Fishman will officially take office January 22.

“I am most excited to work with my executive board to create change,” Fishman said. “I plan on implementing procedures and practices that will sustain in the Greek system. I feel capable and confident to take on my upcoming term.”
