The Star executive normally meets twice a year ( November/Dec and June ) and it is at these meetings that formal approval to begin the joining process is usually given - it then seems to take 12-24 months to progress to full membership after that - so maybe somewhere between mid 2007-mid 2008 ?
( but then again with the Olympics in BJS in 2008 maybe both FM and CA will be given 'fasttrack' )
