For those of you who are just now finding out about this dilemma, you might want to read our first two articles about AANR and Bill: Beverly B. Price president of AANR Fired Bill Schroer – WTF?!?! and AANR Naturist Clubs Evaluations And Update On The Firing Of Bill Schroer.
For those that mightn’t understand, Bill was recruited by AANR. He went through the interview procedure and then was hired by the American Association For Nude Recreation – AANR. It was during the previous administration when Susan Weaver was president of AANR. He was fired October 15 by AANR’s new president, Beverly Price.
I asked Bill how he felt about being approached and later hired, last May, as their new executive director.
http://nudenudist.com was as follows:
“I considered the job a privilege. I’ve been involved with bare diversion for many years and was genuinely honored to be given such a wonderful opportunity. I’d also like to mention which I enjoyed working with the AANR staff who are a wonderful and dedicated group.”
Ever since the news came out about AANR firing Bill Schroer, there is endless speculation and yak about what occurred. There also have been a lot of personal attacks and claims about Bill that simply did not appear to add up. So naturally, I was quite happy when Bill agreed to have a sit down with me and clarify once and for all his outlook about what happened. In this article I ‘ll do my very best to clarify the primary issues and correct any misconceptions that I ‘ve had the opportunity to support based on my conversation with Bill, in addition to other sources from within AANR (many of whom who were unwilling to be named or go on the record).
Just what exactly really occurred? Let’s begin in the day Bill’s contract with AANR was terminated.
Bill Schroer Goes On The Record About AANR
On October 15 at 8:00 in the morning, Bill was sitting by his computer in his office when just elected president of AANR, Beverly Price, walked into the room accompanied by Julie Erlenmeyer, who is on http://x-public.com of AANR Florida. (I suppose that Beverly brought Julie in as a witness and because she works in Human Resources at an area theme park.)
Beverly turned to Bill and merely said that AANR decided to terminate his employment contract – and that was that. Bill, quite shocked by her statement, didn’t put up a fight nor claim. He only recognized it, collected his belongings, said goodbye to the staff and walked out.
Since Bill accepted what she said with no argument, I asked him to clarify why. Here is what he said:
“I believe it’s important to note that one reason I accepted this without opposition was that I believed, at the time, Beverly Price had had a secret meeting with the Board and had the approval of the board to terminate me. It wasn’t until later I learned the board had not been informed. I may have reacted differently had I known then what I know now.”
Since, based on the AANR bylaws, only the board could terminate the ED’s contract, I attempted to figure out why Beverly acted on her own, certainly in breach of AANR’s own rules. Since Bill had no information to provide, I ‘d to search elsewhere to find the answer.
After some conversations with people within / close to AANR, I began to get the feeling that Beverly, for whatever motive, simply determined that she no longer needed him there. That said, the Board had a scheduled meeting just a month away. Why not wait and present her case to the board? I just could not comprehend the rush to actions, particularly since that activity was in clear breach of AANR’s own bylaws?
One Trustee said (off the record) that they thought Beverly fired Bill early because she wouldn’t have had the votes if she waited for the meeting. Not only did he feel that she’d not happen to be able to get the motion passed, he went to say that based on his understanding / feeling, Beverly didn’t need to have to justify her actions to the board with Bill in the room.
* Bill, nevertheless refused to speculate.
Perhaps recognizing that she’d overstepped her bounds, Beverly brought up the vote on terminating Bill’s contract five days later in an emergency telephone meeting with the Board (the motion to terminate passed 10 to 4).
This is an indication that about 30% didn’t agree with her action and were brave enough to cast their vote in a fashion that represented their true feelings.
