Past President of the Fan Writers of America

The Past President of the Fan Writers of America (i.e., the president for the year just past) is elected at the Corflu banquet every year. Each past president simply basks in egoboo without the need of expending effort on pointless tasks, like trying to get the fwa organized.

Some years, two past presidents were elected, the second past president election recognizing a person for a year further in the past than the previous year, e.g. the Corflu 2 election of Suzle Tompkins for the previous year (1984) and the election of Terry Carr for a more distant year (1982).
