SCORE Chapter 219 has a variety of special relationships with businesses and organizations in the area.  

Services We Offer

Free One-on-One Mentoring

It's free! It's unlimited! SCORE Mentors provide you with expertise that will start you on the right path towards your business goals. Learn what to do and what not to do by leveraging the knowledge and experience of our SCORE volunteers. As one client recently said about one our mentors, “The mentor was very knowledgeable and had good insight/ideas. The SCORE people and process are very professional.”

Confidential Meetings

When we receive your 'Request a Meeting' form, a Mentor will call you to schedule a time and place for your first consultation. Thereafter, you can call the Mentor for more consultation as the need arises. We are here to help you on an on-going basis. There is no limit in the number of meetings you can have or in the time period over which you can ask for help.  As one client mentioned, ““I found it useful to have been able to talk about the fiscal moves I have had to make and hear back that I am progressing in the right direction. The Mentors understanding of the complexities of Finance and Compliance and the value of having both be the strongest supporters of each other was a good insight, I had not fully considered”. And another said, “I’ve got great advice from my mentor and definitely realize the value provided by this service.”

Business Seminars

SCORE offers a series of very popular low-cost seminars throughout the year. A sampling includes:
