Presidents of Odyssey chapters must have a strong grasp of the functioning and system of the organization as a whole. Previous experience as an editor or Editor-in-Chief is one of the best ways to prepare, but a committed and passionate writer could also take on the position if they're willing to learn a lot very quickly.
Presidents must have strong skills in interviewing, managing, training, editing, and overall communication. Most of their work will include problem-solving, managing, and promoting, but they will also be in charge of running social media. Emphasize these skills in an interview as well as your dedication to leading the team.
