Gold Star Clubs Guideline and Procedures

Gold Star Referral Clubs' policy is to treat all members equally and ethically. Belonging to a Gold Star Club is an opportunity and a privilege; therefore, we hold ourselves accountable to these guidelines and policies to maintain a high standard of professionalism.

1. Membership is exclusive; one person per business category per Club.

2  Members must follow up with referrals received promptly and professionally.

3. A member may not participate or join another "industry exclusive" business networking organization while a member of Gold Star Referral Clubs.

4. A membership may get placed on probation or forfeited for failure to adhere to these Guidelines and Procedures or our Code of Ethics.


   a. If a member misses more than three meetings within a rolling 90-day period or misses three or more times in a row without a substitute, their membership may get terminated without a refund. A member may send a substitute in their place and not be considered absent. However, a substitute may not replace a member regularly. Members who arrive late or leave early during the meeting may have their membership put on probation or forfeited. Depending on the Club, a member may also be responsible for the Club's "Room Fee" every week, and if absent, they must bring the Room Fee current.
   b. When a member has difficulty attending meetings regularly or requires a substitute more than 25% of the time, the Membership Team or Director should counsel the member to find a solution. If poor attendance continues, the member may get asked to leave the Club. There are no refunds.
   c. Leave of Absence: A member can request a leave of absence for up to six weeks, specifically if the leave is due to medical, military, family, or job-related reasons (such as international travel, etc.). A leave is NOT granted due to a heavy work schedule. Each case will get considered, approved, or disapproved by the Club's Director individually. (Substitutes are encouraged.)
   d. Tardiness is unprofessional and disruptive. Multiple occurrences can result in an absence.

6. A member should not solicit or recruit Club members or visitors into distributors or associates in a multi-level (or other) business endeavor during regular meetings. Any unwanted solicitations of this kind may be cause for termination of membership.

   a. During the 60-second or 10-minute presentation time of the regular Club meeting, the member should present the product or service side of the business, not the business-building side that includes recruiting or sponsoring.
   b.However, outside of the regular Club meeting, a member may inform another member about the income opportunity available with a business, as long as it is not an unwanted or pressured solicitation.

7. Gold Star Club's member lists may not be used for any solicitation.

    a. Any mass email campaign MUST have an unsubscribe feature.
    b. Gold Star members shall not get solicited to non-Gold Star networking meetings without the advance consent
    of the Gold Star Corporate office.

8. Transfers: Transferring members must submit their request to the Gold Star Corporate office by email to The Directors and the new Club will determine and approve transfers. Transferring is discouraged because it can be disruptive and seldom results in member success. There is a $25.00 transfer fee.

9. Change of Classification: A member who wishes to change industry or classification within a Club must submit the request to the Membership Team and the Club's Director. The request may get approved or disapproved at the Club's sole discretion.

10. Visitors may attend a Club twice - a total of two Club meetings. After that, only if an application is submitted and in process for approval.

11. Cross-Clubbing: Members may visit other Gold Star Clubs if their industry seat is open. Cross-Clubbers may not solicit or promote their home Club meetings. Neither can they recruit nor set up 121s with the visitors at that Club while Cross-Clubbing.

12. New Member Applications:

   a. Applications, when completed online, get emailed to the Club's Director. In turn, they will send it out to the Club's members, asking for feedback on the potential member.
   b. It is the responsibility of members to voice any concerns about an applicant BEFORE the applicant is approved. If no concerns get raised, the Membership Team will assume that the applicant is acceptable.
   c. When there is a concern, the Membership Team should treat that concern discreetly and professionally before making any decisions and taking the matter to the Director.
   d. The application process should get completed within about a week, and the Director should notify the applicant when approved.
