FINE Meeting, 3/17, “An Introduction to SCORE”

12 03 2011

Our speaker at the March 17th meeting, 9AM at the Westport Country Playhouse,  will be E. Michael O’Malley, Chapter Chair of Fairfield County SCORE. He will tell us about the services SCORE offers to entrepreneurs and business owners, give us examples of how others have used their services and tell us how we can benefit and take advantage of their offerings.

SCORE is a nonprofit association dedicated to educating entrepreneurs and helping small business start, grow and succeed nationwide. SCORE is a resource partner with the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).

SCORE offers free personal counseling and mentoring services as well as low cost or free workshops and seminars that provide useful, practical small business information on a variety of topics important to your business.

The Fairfield County Chapter has 50 volunteer professionals with a very broad mix of senior executive and small business experience. These dedicated men and women include both working and retired executives and business owners. They conduct more than 3,000 private sessions each year. SCORE volunteers use their expertise and energies to implement proven business practices in accomplishing your business objectives.

We will be meeting in the Barn, which is to the left of the stairway to the Playhouse. There is another event taking place in the Playhouse and the parking lot will be busy. There will be attendants assisting with parking. We’ve been advised to arrive early.

Coffee and tea will be available, as will Bette Lynn’s famous soda bread along with green bagels, to celebrate the day.

The doors open at 9AM with the opportunity to network, followed by a welcome and each attendee giving their “30 second elevator pitch”. This is followed by the presentation and then additional time to network. The meeting concludes by 11AM.

Hope to see you there.
