How do I join the NATE STAR Initiative?

Open enrollment is held July 1 through August 31 each year. This is the only time of the year when new participants are accepted; current participants must re-apply at this time as well.

What are the benefits of the NATE STAR Initiative?

A few of the benefits include:

  • The NATE STAR Initiative provides a tested and proven method for NATE members to have a direct impact on the safety of tower technicians.
  • On a larger scale, the STAR Initiative is NATE’s next step toward establishing an industry wide culture of safety. The results of this program will help further define what should be expected of qualified tower erectors.
  • NATE will recognize members who participate in this program both on the NATE website and through Tower Times. Additional opportunities for recognition will also be considered as the program grows.

How will I know that our company has been accepted?

Upon approval of applications the NATE office will send a letter of acceptance or denial.

Will I have any formal document showing I am a NATE STAR Initiative Member?

Certificates signed by the NATE Chairman and President & CEO, along with a STAR participation card will be sent to each company accepted into the NATE STAR Initiative.
