Jordan Addresses Concerns From Naturists About AANR

My last post Bill Schroer Goes on the Record About Being Fired by AANR ignited up a excellent conversation and exciting yet positive debate (YAY!!!). In the opinions section, there were several points brought up by a number of different folks that I thought should be addressed all together in a brand new post. So now that the dust has settled a bit, I 'll address these added concerns here one by one.
I just needed to let everyone know that yes, I did e-mail with Beverly but she turned down my offer to be interviewed "on the record."
I might have gotten Tom Mulhall of Terra Cotta Inn involved (he was the PR chair of AANR and was always willing to at least offer a statement) but found out that he was no longer their PR person (not even sure who's tasked with that these days).
So after approaching a few others, I was left without any official AANR voice that was miserable, but not surprising.
Now, here are some of the chief points / issues that folks brought up.
Concerns by Nudists About AANR
Since I am no longer an AANR member, some folks had said that I don't have a right to talk about this dilemma.
Just like I have the right have an opinion about the NRA, I see no reason why this same logic wouldn't use in a field that I 'm quite proactive in.
Some had said that I 'm merely out to get AANR.
For the record, I 'm not anti anything. Not even AANR! AANR, in its preceding cycle, has had many wonderful accomplishments. I simply wish I could say the same about today's AANR. But when they do, I am going to be the first (I expect) to point those out!
I do, nevertheless, have strong ideological issues with the manner AANR will be run, managed and promoted as well as certain policies they apply (and undoubtedly the ones they choose to discount). I will be on the record for differing with their forced membership policies, with the fact that they don't force 100% AANR clubs adhere to 100% of AANR's morals / ethics (as AANR present them), the fact that they're inconsistent with the manner they treat clubs and so forth.
For those who are asserting that I 'm outside to get AANR I 'd only like to say that if you'd have read my coverage of the Bill Schroer dilemma, you'd have seen that I spent a ton of time researching, keeping an open mind and doing my very best to pass along the facts as best I could.
Why even bring up the AANR dilemma?
Since AANR themselves did not care to address or inform their members on the particulars, I only sought to learn what occurred. Many FKK'ers are also AANR members and I for one, believe it is essential for us and them to understand what AANR is doing.
I decided to share those findings on our site because I 'm in favor of foil. Aside from any problems you may have with me personally, if you failed to enjoy the issues in the article then you certainly can take up your concerns with AANR - stop shooting the messenger and start focusing on the real issues!
Some said that I / FKK have not attempted to help AANR.
For those of you who called me out for not supporting AANR let me merely point out a few facts:
For the last three to four years, I have been attempting to get AANR to do a favorable piece about their accomplishments and future goals.
I've offered to help them with their on-line problems. The areas I believed I could actually affect their organization would function as facets that pertain to AANR and the internet. It is no big secret that AANR has difficulties in communication, PR, advertising, on-line reputation, social networking and membership outreach. FKK even offers a more extensive reach and I believed I could help AANR reinforce their foundation and even grow it.
While I thought AANR would be http://www.videonudist.com to get any help they can, the replies I've gotten from them were less than excited. A few times they mocked my offer, other times they merely said they valued the offer and would ensure that it remains in mind. I also, on several occasions, had to e-mail them a few times just to get someone to email me back (an on-going issue of theirs).
For those of you who may not know, the web is where I thrive. I've worked along side companies such as google, yahoo and bing and even beta test their products when they ask me to. When I offered to help AANR, I was a bit befuddled by their answer. So I just stopped offering.
And additionally:
We've created good money for different clubs and have never asked for anything in return. We also signed up lots of our members to AANR. During certainly one of our summer gatherings we even had Jim from Juniper Woods (the president of AANR East at the time) give a talk about why he believes people should support AANR.
We offer naturist clubs to advertise on our site, yet very few see the worth is spending the $60 / month. I find this odd because we've got a very targeted audience and if we were to charge $0.03 per click, we'd be making a ton more money! If this were any other industry, we'd be making quite a bit of money merely from advertisement earnings (and we'd never be charging this kind of minute amount).
They see the value and we need them to triumph!
'FKK only gripes but offers no help to the naturist community.'
Resorts and clubs are whining about the decline in memberships and day visits yet they don't seem to be willing to invest in growing their subsequent.
If you ask me, the biggest culprits for why Naturism / Nudism is declining in the U.S. are the resorts and clubs. Many aren't encouraging their company and others are going about it in the most back-ass-wards way potential.
While they do have legitimate reasons for worry, they're not willing to pay for the time and work we do. A person's time has worth, especially if they can be doing something for somebody else. If naturist clubs are not willing to invest in the drastically reduced costs we offer, then why should we help? Yes, we would be unhappy to see them go but we do need to eat.
And a side note about Naturism and the Internet:
I will keep hammering this message until folks start to alter their strategy.
The net is the cheapest and most effective way to grow any following. Especially since many resorts still charge us their day fees even when we go only to write about them or even when we've events and create a few thousand dollars for them while making pretty much nothing for ourselves).
So with that in mind, I'm just saying that if organizations, naturist clubs and nudist resorts do not start altering their approach, they will not live.
That said, Naturism and Naturism in and of themselves will survive.
I hope I had been able to pronounce myself and address the largest worries that came about from your Bill Schroer/ AANR issue. Having said that, please comment and let me know if I lost anything.

I was curious regarding what it was like to be naked on
the plage, why these people did it. I ran to a variety

around me and weren't that close.) I took off my
shoes, socks, and t shirt.
I afterward was relaxed and comfy enough to say to

Comfy I subsequently ran into the ocean and swam. It

experience and desired to do it again.
After that I went back to blacks
several more times. Additionally , I went to other nudist
Seashores; San Onfre, (45 minute north of blacks), and

for me and it was pleasure. It was fantastic to see how each
artist painted me in their own manner. My mom detected
the check from the art school and asked me about it

Since that time, I have been to
two fkk resorts in CA. I had a really pleasant time in
both resorts. The people there were quite friendly and
made me feel welcome there. It was quite relaxing and

meeting awesome folks etc. Most of the folks were old

Nearly consistently. In addition , I go bare at the local fkk

Its very simple to get to, there are folks of all
ages, and they sell beverages and hot dogs on the plage
Plus the water is always warm (87 now) and so is the

Really comfy, feels great and life is more fun in

Interested about how it felt like to be nude in my
room. I do not know
exactly why but I thought I 'd be more comfy
if I took off my knickers, so I did. It felt bizarre
at first, for some time I was self conscience of my
body. Not because anything was wrong, simply because I
had never been nude in my room before I figure. I got
over the awkwardness (self consciousness) and it felt
nice.
When I was 18 a senior in high
school I was on the cross country team. We ran about
a mile or so from a nude beach (Blacks). Individuals joked
about running there, but no one really did.
