ANF Services & Support
The ANF provides a range of services and support to its members and affiliates. The information below outlines the services on offer and the necessary instructions, criteria and forms required to access the appropriate information. It also includes other documents that the Federation has developed. These documents are available for downloading if you wish to be aware of how the Federation operates.
The ANF has developed a questionnaire to go to all its affiliates to obtain information about what is provided by the affiliate. Information obtained through the questionnaire will be made available to members of the ANF through Affiliates and the Supporter Club. This information will also be made available to travellers both within Australia and from overseas.
ANF Supporter Club Membership
The ANF provides a variety of member types to encourage nudists to participate in their movement. Trial, Overseas or Supporter Membership is available to those who have no current formal connection with the movement. Premium Membership is for members of Clubs where the ANF manages that Club’s database. Members of other affiliated clubs may register with the ANF to receive the ANF News by email – they have already paid for ANF membership though their Club – this is called Club Plus Membership. For more information on membership options and the fees associated with each membership type please refer to the Fees page.
Membership of the ANF provides opportunity to support nudism in Australia and overseas by funding lobbying of governments at all levels on various nude related activities and supporting the various affiliates through the programs mentioned above. ANF members receive a regular newsletter (the ANF News) and are issued with ANF/INF passports which allows them to participate in the annual convention and visit many affiliates across Australia and overseas.
Annual ANF Convention
The ANF, through it's member clubs, hosts an annual nude convention and sports rally. The convention is hosted by a member club after a nomination to host the convention is approved at a previous General Assembly of Clubs (The ANF AGM). The ANF has developed an application form to nominate to host a convention and instructions to complete this form. These forms are to ensure clubs have the necessary facilities and infrastructure to conduct such an event. It also allows visitors from others clubs to know what to expect when visiting the convention including the rules that apply to the sports competition.
Code of Behaviour
The ANF Code of Behaviour is a document that has been developed to ensure that both individuals and groups know what is expected of them in the nude environment. As well as providing a guide for the behaviour of individuals and groups, the Code of Behaviour has been invaluable to the Federation to prove to governments that it is serious about it's responsibility of ensuring the proper behaviour of it's members and affiliates.
The ANF is incorporated in NSW and meets all the necessary reporting requirements made by that State. The constitution is the documentation that governs the operation of the Federation.
