The 2016 AANR-NW convention is over and was another roaring success. We have enjoyed and benefited from tremendous leadership for these past years that has the region healthy and strong. I am delighted to take the challenge to continue growth and support of all our members in resorts and event or non-landed clubs as well as at beaches and hot springs. There is still work to do. It is more important than ever that we stick together and keep our foundations strong. Protecting our rights as nudists based on the Constitution is our never ending responsibility.
I plan to visit with many of you in your home clubs to understand and support your efforts to grow and remain strong. Please take this challenge to continue to improve communication within the region and in your clubs to remain the amazing family we are known to be.
