These new members bring ideas, expertise and enterprise solutions. The beauty of Starnet is that we are better together.”
At the Annual Meeting, the Starnet Board, Meetings Committee and staff held a “meet and greet” with members, followed by comments from Michael Ansari of Axis Interior Systems, Inc. and Starnet Meetings Committee Chair, who urged members to support the Starnet Preferred Vendor Network and get involved through committees, networking and use of the Starnet resources to maximize the benefit of their membership.
