Other special committees sometimes also exist. Currently these committees are the Western Nudist Library Committee, Conventions & Facilities and Delegates, and the Nominations and Awards Committee. These committees exist to take on a specific task.
The Conventions & Facilities and Delegates Committee is overseen by the Vice President and are required to meet only a few times each year as they secure the locations of the three Board of Director meetings and the Annual Regional Convention, and assign the number of delegates each club may have at the Regional Convention and administers their credentials.
The Nominations & Awards Committee is also overseen by the the Vice President and are responsible to seek out the names of persons interested in seeking election to the Board of Directors or as elected Officers of AANR-West, confirm any necessary qualifications, and collect/distribute candidate statements for review by the convention delegates prior to the annual election process.
They also gather the names of persons from the various clubs who are the “unsung heroes” of the region, those volunteers who do so much at the local level who deserve recognition as Man of the Year, Woman of the Year, Family of the Year, Young Man/Woman of the Year, and the Hall of Fame Award (Lifetime Achievement). Other awards are given out to individuals in such categories as Sports, Government Affairs, etc. Clubs also receive annual awards for membership increases and other categories of merit.
From time to time we will add a temporary (Ad Hoc) Committee to handle a specific task that is not expected to need long to complete.
