Why join SOAR as a resident or non-resident member?

Joining SOAR provides you an opportunity to fully engage in efforts to develop your community and establish relationships with neighbors, businesses and other community representatives.  SOAR is a membership organization committed to preserving, promoting and enhancing the quality of life and community in Streeterville.  Whether you live in Streeterville year round, or visit your home as an in-town residence, joining SOAR provides you the comfort of knowing that your membership is significantly contributing to efforts to keep Streeterville a neighborhood. 

As a community based non-political, non-profit organization, it is important for SOAR to have a large group of members who support our efforts.  Beyond your financial contribution, membership shows that you support our work. 

SOAR members actively participate in advocacy efforts to sustain our unique urban neighborhood.  We maintain good working relationships with residents, businesses, developers, institutions and others to enhance our community. 

Resident members are those who live in SOAR's geographic boundaries full-time or for part of the calendar year.  Non-resident members are those who live outside SOAR's geographic boundaries.
