The staff was actually planning a surprise office party and cake to mark the occasion. That doesn’t give me the impression of a tyrannical slave driver manager who’s despised by his subordinates.

Therefore I think it’s safe to say that while sometimes things do happen in a work setting and while folks do bump heads in any workplace, in my own opinion this was more than likely not the motive Bill was fired from AANR.
Gossip #3: Bill had misused AANR funds and racked up unexplainable expenditures
I heard this motive being talked about in a few areas and from a number of individuals. When asked, Bill said that he is unaware of any such actual claims. The only thing he could think of was his meeting with some Florida free beach folks and the Bare Necessities Cruise team during a trip to Haulover Beach.
Bill, and TNS activist, has made friends in both organizations. While employed by AANR, he felt it was time to bridge the divide and try to fix some of the old wounds.
As a result, he met with a number of people in the Free Beaches Motion in Florida and the Bare Necessities Cruise team. He wanted to talk about having a more cooperative relationship with all groups that share the same basic ideals.
After the assembly, he took them out to dinner. He submitted the bill for that dinner as an expense, but also reiterated that when Beverly had an issue with reimbursing him, he would be willing to cover the dinner from his own pocket.
In the world of business, making connections and building powerful relationships is an intrinsic part of the day to day. Buying a client lunch or taking them out to dinner is part of the costs of accomplishing business.
Since this is the only item as far as I could learn, I seriously doubt that this would be grounds for termination and therefore I will scrape that off the list.
Rumor #4: Bill was meeting clubs which were removed from AANR due to sexual activities with the intent of reinstating their AANR charter.
I requested bill flat out if he met with clubs like Caliente and Paradise Lakes in his official capacity as the AANR executive director. And if so, what were the goals and reasons for doing so?
Bill affirmed that he did visit both Caliente and Paradise Lakes and added a third resort to that list – Gulf Coast Resort. He said the function was part of an orientation to clubs which used to be part of the AANR nudist club network. He was hoping to better comprehend what their behavior policies are and said that he absolutely wasn’t motivating them to return.
Within the research he was doing on the rating system, he desired to understand how much space there was between a spot like Paradise Lakes (where the homeowners association is still part of AANR) and the formal AANR guidelines. That was his only purpose for seeing those clubs.
Sounds like a good and plausible reason. Since I was unable to find any info that would indicate otherwise, as far as I am worried, I can scratch that reason off the list.
Gossip #5: Bill had decided on his own to get rid of AANR’s attorney and get a brand new one.
When confronted with this question Bill said that had not been inaccurate. Bill said that in consultation with the Beverly Price, he believed that AANR did in fact need a new attorney. Beverly Price really knew of his recommendation and concurred with his assessment.
Bill felt that it was a major issue that their current Indiana-based lawyer, Jawn Bauer, was not licensed to practice in Florida. Though AANR is a national organization, the 13 member staff is in Florida. Since most of the legal issues pertained to employment, it would require an understanding of Florida labor law which Jawn Bauer simply didn’t have.

Bill went on to explain that as far as he’s aware, there was never any trouble with Bauer and none of this should have been a surprise or an issue with the board as Price was completely aware of took.
Since Beverly Price understood what was going on, this can be really a non issue in my opinion. So, I ‘ll scratch it off the list.
Gossip #6: Bill was forcing AANR to restructure according to the Carver model
Bill believed that the present structure of AANR was too cumbersome. The organization itself was structured in a sense that making shifts, course corrections, choices and so forth was an exceptionally challenging and long procedure. He felt that it’d make things clearer, and the decision making process and implementation much easier by converting to the Carver model.
The Carver model is a process for organizational governance. It truly is a popular model with many important non-profit organizations and many school boards, to which Bill compared AANR. Under the Carver model, the policy governance is clearly defined. It guides suitable relationships between an organization’s owners, its board of directors, and its chief executive.
