AANR Membership

Why join AANR through SCNA?

Thank you for your interest in AANR, the American Association for Nude Recreation.

Founded in 1932, AANR is the oldest and largest nudist advocacy organization in North America, with members in all US states as well as in US territories along with Canada and Mexico. The mission of AANR is to “protect, promote, provide and preserve nude recreation…”

AANR provides many benefits to members. It publishes a monthly magazine, The Bulletin, and a monthly e-mail newsletter, The Undressed Press. It offers commercial discounts and members can receive discounted rates at many AANR-affiliated resorts (local examples: Glen Eden, DeAnza, and Olive Dell) across North America. It has an active governmental affairs committee, and its legal team helps its members with family-nudity legal issues such as when there are divorce and child custody issues. As a non-profit mutual benefit corporation, individual AANR members are the owners and have the right to vote and otherwise participate in the operation of the organization.

SCNA is proudly affiliated with this international group and is active in its governance, particularly in the Western Region (AANR-West.) While not required, we strongly urge you to support their efforts to protect our rights to nude recreation in this country. Joining AANR through SCNA helps to maintain our charter, allows us to request help to further our own outreach and advocacy mission, and it increases our opportunities to provide input into AANR operations. In exchange we can offer to you a discount over the national membership rate.

AANR offers several classes and durations of membership for individuals, youth and students. Most of our members opt for the Basic Annual membership, a two-year membership, or a student membership. There are also Premier, Full Life and Elite levels for those who wish to provide additional support to the nudist movement and receive thankful recognition.

The current rate for basic AANR membership through SCNA is $55 per year. The student rate is $31 per year. For other membership options and payment methods, contact SCNA.
