Beverly B. Price of the America Association for Nude Recreation Fires Bill Schroer:
For those who may not be as conscious of the political happenings in the Nudie world The American Association For Nude Recreation (AANR) has recently held elections and Beverly B. Price appeared as the new President of AANR. In addition, earlier this year, the America associationFor Nude recreation had hiredBill Schroer to fill the executive director position, following the resignation of Jim Smock.
Everybody knows that AANR and FKK have not seen eye to eye on many things, but the statement ofBill Schroer as the new executive director was one that I personally supported wholeheartedly. Dare I say that I was even excited by this news. For the very first time in four years, I was excited about what AANR had done!
While I ‘ve never met Bill Schroer personally, I have been corresponding with him via e-mail and over the telephone for the last 3 – 4 years. Like me, Bill comes from the online marketing and tech world so I knew he’d be an important asset if AANR was hoping to push their plan (you can read in what they’re all about here: Naturist Organizations) and turn itself around. Finally a someone who understands the net and the value it provides!
Earlier this week I e-mailed Bill randomly. I simply wanted to see how he was doing and to see if I could be of any service or help. It arrived an entire surprise and shock when he said that the America Association for Nude Recreation had decided to terminate his employment.
I couldn’t believe it!
Bill is a vocal and favorable supporter and I simply couldn’t wrap my head around this recent move by AANR.

Then I saw the the SCNA newsletter which offered even more disturbing facts relating to this issue.
In their own newsletter they said:
“He [Bill Schroer] was really well-liked by the membership, and he seemed eagerto hear suggestions from everyone on how exactly to make AANRmore useful in a rapidly changing technological world.
It therefore came as a shock to learn through the Twitter grapevine that Bev Price, the just-elected AANR President apparently walked into his office one day in mid-October andtold Bill he was no longer working for the America Association for Nude Recreation.
Sources said Bill told them he was quite surprised, as there had been no previous warning. Based on the AANR By-Laws, the President cannot hire or fire the Executive Director, simply the14 Board of Trustees may do that. At least some of the Boardmembers have confessed they had no idea this was coming.
Word of the firing rippled across the AANR clubs at the speedof Twitter, with “WTF” being the most courteous reaction to whatappears to be a really unpopular decision. The only thing the Kissimmee main office will say is: ” is not used by AANR. We wish him well.
Schroer had only been on the job since May. He was AANR’sthird Executive Director in 36 months.”
For the record, I ‘m no longer a member of the America Association for Nude Recreation. However , I understand that many of the FKK followers and members are. Therefore I encourage you to email them and express your concerns about just how they handled this dilemma.
If you would like to see the America Association for Nude Recreation succeed then you may need to also rant about the fact that they just fired among the most capable executives they could have ever expected to have.

It’s possible for you to email AANR directly at: [e-mail protected] (please note that this is their primary email address and which you may need to e-mail them a few time in order to get any response – that was our experience at least).
