SCORE Comes to Fayette County

The Fayette County Chamber of Commerce office in Fayetteville will be the home of a brand new SCORE chapter. SCORE is a 45 year old resource partner of the U.S. Small Business Administration. Its mostly retired counselors offer free small business counseling and low cost workshops to both startup and in-business clients.

Nationally, SCORE is an organization of almost 11,000 volunteers in 375 chapters in the U.S. serving over 500,000 clients yearly. The Atlanta Chapter is an organization of over 75 counselors located in 15 offices throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area.

The new Fayette County chapter will operate from the Fayette Chamber office at 200 Courthouse Square in Fayetteville. The SCORE counselors will schedule appointments from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm on Fridays. To make an appointment for counseling or attend one of the chapter’s workshops, visit www.scoreatlanta.org and register. A counselor will call to set an appointment.

The opening of the SCORE chapter in collaboration with the Fayette Chamber and Fayette Encore graduates represents a golden opportunity for small businesses in the area to obtain professional guidance in the operation of their businesses.

The Chamber’s collaboration with SCORE provides another tool for Fayette County businesses to use to help them survive and thrive in the current economic climate.
