STAR COUNCILS and ACTION GROUPS
Texas is a huge state! To address local and regional needs, as well as keep our members engaged, STAR has Councils and Action Groups that members can choose to join.
You might be wondering what the difference is between a Council and an Action Group!
Councils operate formally with an elected steering committee, host regular calls, have an operating budget, and plan out year-long events and tours.
Action Groups are informal, with no regular calls or meetings, and are comprised of STAR members who want to have a networking and support channel to facilitate tours, events, and meetings, when needed.
Both the Councils and the Action Groups help STAR achieve its mission of advancing recycling in Texas, as our members—our so-called, "boots on the ground"—are able to collaborate and facilitate solutions locally and on specific subjects.
