STAR Denver A STAR IS BORN!  STAR was the vision of our founders to save time and enhance the quality of new and existing business relationships by meeting with like-minded professionals at regular events.  We will grow organically with like-minded professionals.

(1)  A professional is someone who has high character, competency and a circle of influence.  One who thrives through his/her business and civic engagement; and

(2)  Professionalism is something that is leveraged through collaboration and the spirit of actively sharing knowledge and assistance.

Membership dues are $600 each year.  Membership is by invitation only and is principally reserved to those with 7+ years of professional, business and/or advisory experience after approval by the Board.

There are many “referral-type” meeting entities.  Some charge as much as $1,000 yearly and require an annual commitment.  Others have nominal dues commitments, but STAR offers monthly venues that always have the quantity and quality of attendees that you deserve.
