CORE Bench-marking Performance Measurement Survey
As we prepare to roll out SCORE Engage, we want to make sure we are meeting your needs with SCORE Engage as a Product. To do this, we need to benchmark customer satisfaction with CORE overall as well as for CORE's support of key business processes. This data will allow us, once users are on SCORE Engage, to evaluate and compare the two systems as a set of integrated tools supporting business processes.
The survey will only take about 5 minutes to complete. Thank you for your feedback.
The 2019 Client Engagement Survey with PwC has been distributed to clients.
Please encourage the clients in your chapter (that received service in FY2019) to provide their feedback.
For volunteers mistakenly included in the distribution list, apologies for any confusion or inconvenience. Please do not complete the survey, and instead, unsubscribe from the distribution list to prevent receiving follow up emails from PwC.
Key dates listed below:
October 28, 2019 - Survey Launched
November 2019 - Survey Reminders sent each week
December 13, 2019 - Survey Close
January 27, 2020 - Survey data available in online portal
Chapter Social Media Program: Facebook Update
Great news! It appears all
un-published chapter Facebook pages have been restored, including the 11 pages that were deleted.
We are hypothesizing that chapter pages may have been unpublished/deleted for having a fake profile as a page admin. These fake profiles violate Facebook's community standards. As a best practice, we recommend chapters access their business page through personal profiles. If your chapter does not already have a designated Facebook admin, please reach out to email@example.com with the name of who you would like to have access and their Facebook profile link.
Thank you all for your patience as you have waited for your pages to be restored. We apologize for the inconvenience and will continue to investigate the situation.

RVP's visit Herndon HQ - November 6th and 7th
The Field Vice Presidents held their Fall meeting in the SCORE headquarters in Herndon, VA. The meeting focused on communication and planning for this year. Holding the meeting at headquarters made it possible for the staff to work directly with our field leaders, to share plans, and to gather feedback. This sharing of information ensures that we are able to align the needs of our volunteers and clients.
