NAC Area Representatives

Initiated in 1995, the Area Representative program of the Naturist Action Committee has quickly become a significant part of NAC's integrated mission to advance and protect the rights of naturists throughout North America. Area Reps, or "NACARs," as they're sometimes called, are the eyes and ears - and often the voice - of NAC at the local level.

NAC Area Reps are proven naturist advocates who are appointed by the NAC board to posts in which they coordinate at a local or regional level the legislative and legal actions undertaken by NAC. These essential volunteers are often the first to pinpoint the early signs of trouble in a state legislature or a local municipal council.

Each NACAR reports directly to one of the nine elected board members of NAC. A bidirectional flow of information allows NAC to make fast and effective responses to developing crises and to seize opportunities for proactive advances.

Important features of the NAC Area Representative program

View Area Representatives list

  • Each NACAR volunteer is assigned a specific geographical area of responsibility, often a single state or an important local community. Area Reps are responsible for tracking events, activities, trends and conditions in that area, as they relate to naturism. Identifying both threats and opportunities, each NACAR works closely with a member of the NAC board.
  • Area Reps are often instrumental in illuminating the unique aspects of a local situation, capturing and communicating the "flavor" of local issue, as only a local resident can do. NAC's ability to respond appropriately often depends on such critical information.
  • In return, NAC's continent-wide coordination allows the Area Rep to benefit from a centralized overview that can often identify strategies and tactics that have proven successful in other locations. This is a faithful implementation of the familiar "Think globally, act locally" philosophy of grass roots responsiveness.

If you are a talented naturist activist who wishes to make a difference as a part of something important, contact the NAC board member who oversees your area and ask about becoming a NACAR.
