Welcome to Meghan’s Media Minute!

This monthly newsletter for our SCORE volunteer media spokespersons is designed with you in mind: to share updates, monthly media tips and recent successes. Thank you for all you do for SCORE!


Media Tip of the Month

If you don’t feel comfortable answering a specific question, you can refer reporters back to our media team ( or simply say “that is not my area of expertise.” 

Media Successes: Shoutout to Volunteers and Mentors in the News

We're incredibly grateful to our knowledgeable group of SCORE media spokespeople and volunteers. Below are some of our recent media placements:
