New Computers Are Being Installed
Deployment of the new computers has given rise to a buzz of office station reorganization, which you will certainly notice when you next visit the AANR office. The staff always enjoys it when members drop by.
The Electronic Initiatives Committee's database Transition Team has held several conference calls in preparation for the new Customer Relations Management/Finance system.
The latest membership incentive program on Facebook and the E-Bulletin has been attracting significant attention. The AANR office has been rotating various membership incentive programs throughout the year.
A Members Says Thanks
One of our new members sent me a very moving email, saying "Thank you and all at AANR for affirming my choice in recreation." This sort of communication really makes us all feel good about the work your volunteers and staff carry out every day on behalf of AANR and nude recreation.
