Naturists Campaigning for Naturism

INF: gets very messy

You will have seen from our earlier post that a ‘civil war’ has broken out among INF leaders over the disputed election which ousted Sieglinde Ivo as President. They have decided to hold the vote again, not by the cheap, quick and easy option of asking everyone to cast their votes by email, but by insisting that Council members come from all over the world to Vienna, some time before July, to cast votes in person. This was bad enough, but the infighting continues, where everyone’s recollection of what happened differs, and have different views on what the INF’s rules say anyway. It looks as if (Ex-) President Ivo, and her Vice President Jean Peters are becoming isolated from the rest of the INF Council, but they are just not taking the hint and doing the honourable thing. So the war of words continues, INF goes nowhere, more money gets wasted, and naturism as a whole suffers.

Rather than relate the entire farce blow-by-blow, we attach copies of letters that have come into our possession from President-elect Jamier to President (Legal Council) Begeot, the letters of complaint from SANNA and NZNF and INF’s reply from Vice-President Peters, and Vice-President Peters to President-elect Jamier. We shall let you draw your own conclusions.

  • What a great time to get rid of an organization that has become useless, and start something that works at promoting naturism worldwide.

  • You can certainly say that Bruce, but we (NAG) cannot possibly comment. The question that springs to mind though is, do the other representative organisations have the political will to organise it properly, with terms of reference and a purpose that benefits its members and naturism as a whole?

  • I would suggest that the organisation has become useless because of its leadership. That does not make the organisation itself a bad idea. I believe that there is still a very important role for an international naturist group. I also think it would be easier to regain control of the INF and its assets than to try and form a new one.

  • But again, the question about political will arises.

  • Yes, I think some have the will to get INF on track and more power to them.

    There is a need for a well organized international naturist organization, one that doesn’t just sell tickets, but one that promotes naturism on a international scale.

    Lets face it, an election was held and a new President elected. Lets get on with the job. The old President needs to step down, period!
