The purpose of the Northern Stars organization is to
enhance the club experience by giving constellations an additional identity
within a region, to help organize combined events, and use their combined
numbers and the local culture to promote the Northern Stars.
"The premise behind our organization is simple. It is a vehicle
for Northern Stars members to meet and socialize with each other in the
“real world" beyond the limitations of the Northern Stars'
backbone, the Internet. It is a network of fellow Northern Stars members
to share and exchange the wealth of information the Northern Stars is
continually accumulating through the input and experiences of its members.
It is a light and a wrench on a dark, unknown road fifty, or a thousand,
miles from home when a member has that rare breakdown or other need for
help. And it is a web of friendship like no other, with a brotherhood
of support around the globe."
