2020 NAC & NEF Boards Call for Candidates

The Naturist Action Committee and the Naturist Education Foundation are independent organizations with different missions:

* The Naturist Action Committee is a non-profit 501(c)4 political advocacy social welfare organization.  NAC’s mission is to promote naturists and naturism, to increase opportunities for naturist activities, and protect the naturist opportunities that exist. Its efforts include lobbying, working with other naturist organizations, monitoring and affecting legislation and case law that affects naturists, and promoting naturism as a legitimate recreational activity and lifestyle.  It advocates for positive legislation to allow for increased nude use of public lands and beaches and the decriminalization of non-sexual nudity.  In addition to legislative advocacy, NAC provides guidance and support for court cases regarding issues involving first amendment rights, improper law enforcement, naturist business and family rights, and top-free rights of women.

* The Naturist Education Foundation is a non-profit 501(c)3 public charity organization. NEF is dedicated to informing and educating naturists and non-naturists about the many benefits of naturism, improving the awareness of naturism and body acceptance, and achieving an understanding and acceptance of naturists and their activities throughout North America.  These goals are achieved by many methods including initiating and participating in projects to further the understanding and acceptance of naturism, awarding grants to projects demonstrating a need and an ability to benefit the causes of naturism and body acceptance, providing knowledgeable speakers for informative presentations, funding professional opinion polls establishing evidence of widespread support, providing awards and scholarships to high-school and college students, providing a growing online compilation of legal materials pertinent to naturists and nudity-related issues, providing local naturist groups with needed informational and financial assistance, producing and funding various educational naturist videos and materials, and supporting lawsuits regarding issues involving first amendment rights, improper law enforcement, naturist family rights, and top-free rights for women.  A very important project of NEF is preserving naturist history through the Naturist Education Foundation Research Library (NEFRL), and making that history available to its library members and the general public.

While the missions of NAC and NEF are different, many of the activities overlap and the organizations often work together. Board members serve on both NAC and NEF boards as a dual role. They are elected for three-year terms, which are staggered so that 1/3 of the board positions are open each year.
