Congratulations SCORE Boston
2017 Chapter of the Year!
"SCORE Boston epitomizes how a chapter can succeed with a focus on the basics - chapter culture, service expansion, and collaborative leadership. Boston's winning of the 2017 SCORE Chapter of the Year is the culmination of years of progress. Specifically, SCORE Boston is now effectively serving its entire community, doubling the number of service locations in and around Boston in the past year. Boston also committed to expanding how we serve clients - TRIPLING the number of local in-person workshops given and QUINTUPLING the number of workshop attendees.
Not only has the commitment to be client centric - meeting and serving clients where they are in the community - resulted in significant client success (hundreds of new businesses started and new jobs created), but it has created more engagement with SCORE volunteers and has helped to attract a cadre of new, diverse volunteers to SCORE. The 'playbook' Boston has followed is one every chapter should read and execute because it works!"
