We are happy to announce our new STAR student membership rate!

Students who are actively enrolled in college/university courses can now become members of STAR for a discounted rate of $25/a year. This provides the opportunity for soon-to-be young professionals to get involved in our organization and begin networking with other industry professionals to help gain experience and relationships to begin a successful career start in the environmental industry– all at a reasonable cost to them.

Students will be required to provide a copy of their course schedule and student ID as proof of enrollment.

These memberships will have the same benefits as a normal STAR membership, including joining any of our regional and topical councils, discounts on STAR events– including Summit, and be a part of our STAR email network. If you know any students who may be interested in joining STAR, please have them contact the STAR office at, or send them the membership link. Simply check off the “student” option and be sure to email the STAR office with a photocopy of your student ID and current class schedule as proof of enrollment. We look forward to helping young professionals get involved and providing professional and educational development opportunities.
