Membership status update

Due to the impacts of Covid-19, NorthStar Clubhouse has transitioned to virtual meetings, with limited availability for attendance at the physical location.

As of September 1st, 2020, we can no longer accept new members. This will be temporary. We will revisit resuming orientations in the future. As soon as the situation shifts, the website will be updated. For more information, see below.


We value the safety of our community and look forward to meeting our prospective members soon!
