  1. Hi Bob, I LOVE your resort!!! The only problem with White Tail is that it’s not closer to my home!!! Anyway, I have a question for both Vice Presidential Candidates that I’m hoping you can help me with. Many of the positions within AANR are pretty self-explanatory in terms of what the elected official will DO. For me, the position of the Vice President isn’t clear. Can you tell me what the job of the AANR VP entails and how your specific skills make you the best candidate to fulfill the responsibilities within this job description? Thanks!

      Melissa,

      The Vice President serves as President if the President is unavailable or unable for any reason to perform his duties. The Vice President also performs those duties assigned to him or her by the President.

      My skills and experiences very much make me fully capable of assuming the duties of the President and to perform any tasks assigned to me by the President. This is my 29th year as founder, owner and operator of White Tail Resort, one of the largest and most successful clubs in AANR-East with over 650 members with our largest age group being 36 to 48. White Tail Resort has one of the highest percentage of younger members and children of any club in AANR; these are population segments that AANR as a whole must attract and retain in order to grow.

      Over the years, I have held numerous offices in both AANR and AANR-East. I’m a current AANR Trustee with 3 previous terms. I served on the AANR President’s Advisory Group for 3 years and on the AANR Hall of Fame Committee for 4 years including as Chair in 2005. I have served AANR-East as a Director, as President, as Vice President and as member of the Internal Affairs Committee. I have been a Director and Vice President for the Virginia Campground Association and was a Board member of the Virginia Hospitality & Travel Association where I also served on various committees. In terms of businesses represented and monetary value of those businesses, The Virginia Hospitality & Travel Association is the largest hospitality trade entity in Virginia, with numerous resorts, hotels, campgrounds and restaurants among its membership.

      This extensive Nudist, Association, Club Owner and Hospitality Industry experience will greatly help me focus AANR on operating in an efficient business like manner and expanding membership, with an emphasis on recruiting and retaining younger adults and young families.

      Thank you for writing and your active interest in the candidates and the election process. I do hope to earn your vote.
