Chapter Chair
The Dayton Chapter of SCORE was founded in 1970 as a nonprofit volunteer organization to assist the Small Business Administration (SBA) in helping grass roots profit and nonprofit businesses to start and grow in the Miami Valley area.

Spring has arrived and with it came a whole set of new activities. If you have not recently checked the website, you will find a whole new series of classes for both for profit and not-for-profit business. Our collaboration with Columbus SCORE has really blossomed! Over 700 people have signed up so far.

Have you thought about sharing your experience with others? Now would be an excellent time to volunteer to help our community prosper. Dayton SCORE could really use your help. SCORE Volunteer Application.
