National Chapter of the Year

We are excited to announce that we are now accepting applications for the National Chapter of the Year Awards.  The National Chapter of the Year is the highest annual recognition for chapters in SCORE. In addition to the National Chapter, we recognize a Chapter of the Year for Large, Medium and Small markets.  In order to be considered for these awards, you must apply. 
Chapters must submit their application to the SCORE Association office for consideration as the National Chapter of the Year no later than January 31. The final selection of the winner will be made no later than March 31.
Prior to submitting your application, please review the complete National Chapter of the Year -  Submission Guidelines for specific information regarding criteria used to determine our winners and the process for submitting applications.
The method for submission of the application material is electronic submission. The electronic submission will be contained to one form including all narratives, reports, and required scanned support documents. SCORE has created a simple submission process where materials can be uploaded. Volunteers should access the form for COTY by clicking the following link and logging in using their SVO email address.

SCORE Support Center
We are excited to announce we are in the final stages of developing the new SCORE Support Center, to replace the Volunteer Center in the coming year. The Support Center combines the best of help.score.org and volunteer.score.org. It will be the central location for all SCORE volunteer resources moving forward. The new Support Center has been in development for several months and has been through several rounds of review with various volunteers and staff.
We are notifying you as volunteer leadership that the Support Center will be available for your use at help.score.org coming in January. Once it is live, we will invite you to go to help.score.org and start using the new site for anything you might have gone to the Volunteer Center for before.
The current Volunteer Center will remain in place through at least April of 2020. This date can be delayed until the majority of our volunteers feel comfortable with the new site.
Key Dates and Information
  • The Support Center will be available at help.score.org
  • In January we will invite leaders to start using the site and share and comments about your experience to volunteer.services@score.org
  • In February we will start inviting all volunteers to use the new Support Center at help.score.org
  • Once roll-out is complete, volunteers will still log in through volunteer.score.org to access the Support Center and all of SCORE's other systems.
  • To access SCORE Training, Performance Data, CORE, Reports, and eventually Engage, volunteers will need to log in to volunteer.score.org.
  • Performance Data and SCORE Directories will be moved to the CORE pages as it is SCORE proprietary data and must be kept behind a log-in.

We invite you to join a Support Center Introduction Webinar on Tuesday January 14, from 1-2 PM Eastern.

Thank you for your support during this very important transition!
