On April 15, 2018 the AANR-NW Board unanimously voted to reaffirm and describe the AANR Non-Discrimination policy as stated here. This was done to give a positive way to answer the questions posed by potential visitors about whether they would be welcomed at nudist clubs. For example, questions we have heard are whether they are too big or too old or they’re a single man. Being able to point to the website is an easy way to answer such questions in a positive way.
The AANR-NW Non-discrimination policy reads as follows:
AANR-NW reaffirms the AANR non-discrimination policy by-laws, Section I Article IV A, “AANR welcomes all people willing to conform to its principles and standards, regardless of age, gender, marital status, religious beliefs, ethnic origin or sexual orientation.” To AANR-NW this includes welcoming all single, partnered and married people of all gender identities, ethnicities, sexual identities, ages, sizes, religions and physical abilities.
At the beginning of May, AANR members who were current on March 15, 2018, should have received an email with their voter’s registration code. It will have been sent from firstname.lastname@example.org. The subject was AANR Ballot. This email contains detailed instructions on how to cast your vote.
If you did not receive this email, call the AANR office at 1-800-TRY-NUDE to get help. They will help you get your registration code. The AANR Office is located in Kissimmee, Florida, so call during the week before 1pm Pacific Time. If you share your email with another AANR member, one of you may need to use a paper ballot, so don’t delay since there will be postal delays in sending paper back and forth across the country. Actually, I encourage everyone to vote now so that you don’t forget to do so.
The voter’s guide can be found in the May AANR Bulletin, in the member’s only section on AANR.com, and at
You are encouraged to vote. In years past, less than 10% of the AANR membership has chosen its leadership. AANR-NW has led the organization with the best turnout. Let’s do it again this year. Your vote counts. Please take the time to vote.
