As many noticed yesterday, Box had service outages for a few hours, preventing everyone from accessing the Marijuana Policy from the SBA.  Box is now back up and running smoothly, and the link below should now work.  Apologies for the inconvenience.

ABC Radio Special Report on SCORE
ABC Radio in Baltimore recently did a special report on the impact that SCORE has in the small business community. Both Thomas Shipley (Baltimore) and Hal Shelton (DC) were also featured for the great work they are doing in their respective communities. You can listen to the story here.

As always, we want to thank all of our volunteers for all that they do.  It is truly making a difference!
