Become a Board Member - START is always looking for new people to serve on the Board. We need fresh ideas and new energy to transform those ideas into action.


Offer Ideas - New ideas are always welcome (as long as you're willing to help implement them!). If you have an idea for a demonstration or leafleting event, let us know and we will try to support you. We will do our best to help get the word out and may be able to help with signs and/or literature. If you know of specific alerts, news reports, demos, or other items you believe worthy of attention, alert us and we will try to include them in our next e-newsletter and on our Calendar page.
