Profiles—Steven Stoller—December 2010
Name: Steven T. Stoller
Club or AANR-East Affiliation: Potomac Rambling Bares
I was born in 1959, a Federal Government employee with the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) since 1996 specializing in computer systems analysis), who owns a house in Poolesville, Maryland along with my partner, Robin (presently an AANR-East Director), who I met at an AANR Government Affairs (GA) workshop while she was on her first nudist vacation. (I am a trained AANR government affairs and public relations spokesperson.)
In the past, I have uniquely served as both an AANR-East Director (4+ years) and a Naturist Action Committee Area Representative (NACAR) who alerted the NAC to local issues and proposed regulations.
I presently prepare Paperwork Reduction Act justifications for the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, serve as the National Minerals Information Center Paperwork Elimination Act liaison, design and maintain about 100 forms distributed to about 20,000 respondents replying annually, semiannually, quarterly, and monthly in electronic and paper format, and manage change requests for our Web-based Minerals Information Forms System (MIFORMS) which I designed from the ground up. Prior experience from the early 1990s included managing a 16-million-dollar budget for my organization during its existence as part of the USGS and as part of the now-abolished U.S. Bureau of Mines. I am a University of Maryland alumni with two bachelors degrees (Information Systems Management and Marketing).
As AANR-East Webmaster, I managed a $20,000 budget to overhaul our Web site which, for non-repeat visits, jumped from 30 monthly visits to almost 200 daily visits. A unified Association image is now projected with your officials’ AANR-East domain e-mail addresses.
I am on the Potomac Rambling Bares Board of Directors (since 2003) and have visited about 50 nudist clubs. At the Regional level, I received the following recognitions: Member of the Year (2009), President’s Honorary Life Membership (2008), Man of the Year (2007), and the President’s Meritorious Service Award (2007).
I will have succeeded in my various roles with AANR-East if I instill in you not only the joys of nude recreation but also the satisfaction of “making a difference” and giving back by supporting our community. Along with attracting more volunteers, I want to attract more youth who affiliate as a result of a new dedicated Web site youth area and social networking.
My AANR-East GA and NACAR activities demonstrate that I consider myself a “nudist activist” who gets things organized rather than an “active nudist”. I advocated regaining nude use of Assateague and personally spoke with the Park Superintendent in 2009 to try to ensure a place for us in its forthcoming General Management Plan. I also lobbied legislators face-to-face for parental rights at the White Tail Park (now White Tail Resort) nudist youth camp. I will continue to update you daily with the most useful nudist news in our Web site Members Lounge.
Robin and I are AANR’s eyes ears, and mouthpiece at trade shows and have conducted Membership Appreciation events at clubs answering questions and promoting AANR in a fun atmosphere with poolside games.
Family nude recreation has enabled me to come out of my shell (with Robin’s help) and meet the friendliest folks in a non-judgmental atmosphere where I got to know people for who they really are on the inside. My quality of life has immensely improved since my first social nudist experience walking through the gate of Avalon Resort in Paw Paw, WV for their 2002 “FolkFest” (now “AvalonFest”).
At various times in my life, my hobbies have included genealogy (I have collected over 1,100 of my relatives in a database), amateur radio, chess, ten-pin bowling, and Israeli folkdance. During the 1980s, I lived in Israel for four years. Later this year, I plan on learning the accordion.
