Q - My small business has grown rather nicely in the last 3 years, is profitable, and I am staffed with competent help. Now that I have a little free time, I would like to volunteer with a local organization working in support of other small businesses. What does SCORE have to offer?
A - Your timing is excellent. SCORE has recently announced implementation of their national business plan aimed at a million small business start-ups in the next several years. This will require an increase in local SCORE chapter activities across the country. Here is what it will mean for the Hagerstown SCORE chapter:
In principle, SCORE counselors will now become mentors. This will result in building relationships with each client designed to nourish not only the start-up but also the growth of the business
To implement this plan, SCORE Hagerstown will commence a recruiting campaign designed to help us meet the new business plan requirements. Here is a sample of volunteer positions that are available to area men and women.
MENTORS - work one-on-one and in teams providing help for both start-up and on-going businesses. Both computer and on-site training are available to mentors; typical monthly volunteer hours are in the range of 4-6 hours. 
TRAINER - provide new member orientation and development; participate in on-going member education.
WORKSHOP/SEMINAR PRESENTERS - engage in a variety of public presentations for start-ups and on-going small business owners/operators. Includes SCORE roundtable events.
COMMUNITY RELATIONS SPECIALIST - helps locate and build relationships for SCORE with a variety of community resources such as banks, businesses, organizations and other groups.
RECRUITER - will work within the area to promote and develop candidates for SCORE volunteer openings such as described in this article.
LEADERSHIP OPPORTUNITIES - growth brings opportunity for members to develop their leadership capabilities. On-going need exists for members to rotate through chapter chair, as well as internal and external vice chair responsibilities.
Whether you are looking for a way to give back to the community and/or wish to affiliate with a highly regarded volunteer organization “on the grow”, we encourage you to check us out. Call Bob Jones at 301-606-9456 or Bob Poor at 301-991-3126 for additional details.
