I ask for your vote

I have been a member of AANR since 1998 and joined AANR-NW when I moved to the Northwest in 2004.  Since then, I have served in the region as a member of the Board of Directors, as Vice President and as President.  As Digital Communications Chair, I created the program to provide free web services that are available for all of our clubs.  I have been the editor and publisher of the Nude News for the last 10 years.  The purpose of this publication is to remind nudists of why we need AANR, that our freedom to be nude must be protected.   Currently, I am the chair of the AANR committee to replace the membership management software package that AANR has been using for decades.  We want to replace this software to make it easier for clubs to manage memberships and to give the office more time to generate excitement for new members.  I also serve on the board of the AANR Education Foundation.

While serving AANR-NW, I have been awarded the AANR Woman of the Year Award, the AANR Presidential Meritorious Service Award twice, the AANR-NW Woman of the Year Award twice, and the AANR-NW Presidential Meritorious Service Award.

We have many important issues facing us. We need to find a new Executive Director.  We need to continue to retain and grow our membership. We need to protect nudism from those that wish to restrict our freedom.  We need to promote and normalize nudism.  We need to find ways for all members to feel safe within nudist venues.  To do this, we must figure out who we are and what we stand for as an organization.  If we don’t, how we can plan for the future?   Let’s get clarity on who we are and then let’s build the organization to fit it.

I listen. I lead by example.  I bring people together.  I am a problem solver.  I come up with innovative solutions.  And I follow through.  I ask for your vote so that I can work for AANR like I have worked for AANR-NW.
