The meeting will get underway on Saturday at 9 a.m. On the agenda include the approval of this year's budget. Discussions on club activities, naturist use of public lands, membership initiatives, updates on GAT issues in Florida and a status report regarding the economic impact study being funded by AAN-Florida are also on the agenda.

NAPL is also sponsoring "Give me yours, I'll give you mine." This is a fun nudist accessory and clothing swap. No sales, only trades. Preregistration is required in order to accommodate all participants. To sign-up, send an email to:  WINRPASCO@YAHOO.COM

Hope to see you at the meeting.

Economic Impact Study

AANR-Florida has entered into an agreement with Isla Solutions Consulting to conduct an economic impact study of nude recreation in Florida.

This study will commence on April 1st and is scheduled to be completed by July 30th.  The study will be as inclusive as possible, capturing the impact of clubs, beaches, tourism and clothing optional cruises.  Most of the data gathering will be done with clubs, associated businesses like Bare Necessities and through public records searches.

The two principal consultants on this study are John Heather and Dr. Stan McGahey.  Both are associated with St. Leo's University in Tampa.  John is the founder and senior partner of Isla Solutions Consulting, and Stan is the past Director of International Hospitality and Tourism Management at St. Leo University.  Both have extensive backgrounds in international tourism development and have worked internationally in Sri Lanka, Mongolia, Guam, South Korea, China, Turkey, Indonesia, Kurdistan, Afghanistan and Iraq.

Dr. McGahey is also very familiar with the nudist industry in Pasco County and was a member of a committee established in 2012-2013 to attract increased foreign tourists to Pasco County's clothing optional resorts.  He was also a guest speaker at the AANR Convention hosted by Lake Como in 2013.
