Returning to Star? Check out our Community Building Program!

We want our conferences to continue to grow, so we’re asking our Star Island family members to bring someone with you to Star this year. Here’s how it works:

1) Find that person (or more than one person) that you feel would be able to best contribute to the community on Star Island.Consider people in your extended family, congregation members, co-workers or other personal networks!

2) Nominate that person by filling out this form.

3) Star will cover 30% of the room and board for your new Shoaler, provided they attend the full duration of the conference!

4) We’ll also kick in $50 toward your room and board, provided you attend the full duration of the conference! (if you bring 4 or more new people, we’ll give you $125!)
