STAR is proud to announce the 2014-2015 selections for the Technical Advisory Group. The purpose of the STAR Community Rating System Technical Advisory Group (TAG) is based on STAR’s guiding principle of continuous improvement. The TAG’s mission is to enhance and where necessary clarify the STAR Community Rating System. The group will address the following:
- Maintain and advance the technical aspects of the existing STAR Community Rating System.
- Continuously build, improve and advance credit intents, requirements and guidance.
- Uphold the technical rigor, fairness and transparency in the STAR Community Rating System development process.
- Holistically oversee, integrate, manage and envision the technical aspects of the STAR Community Rating System.
STAR Communities recruits for the TAG annually in the fall, unless there is a specific vacancy. Candidates must apply to be considered. The selection committee is comprised of STAR Communities staff and Steering Committee members. STAR strives to maintain a balance of TAG members from across the full spectrum of the Rating System.
