Q: I just read where the month of May is designated as National Small Business Month. Does the local SCORE chapter have any involvement in celebrating the occasion?
A: You bet! The local SCORE chapter has a variety of events planned. Here is a quick rundown of what you can expect :
• Monthlong volunteer recruitment. Perhaps you are a small-business person who is curious about becoming a member of the local SCORE chapter. Find out what small business mentoring involves; become a presenter at our seminars and workshops; ad learn about a variety of volunteer actvities available.
• SCORE Small Business Roundtable on Thursday, May 19, from noon to 1:30 p.m. at Bulls & Bears, 38 S. Potomac St. in downtown Hagerstown. Learn what bankers need to know in order to get you a business loan, and network with other small-business owners and operators. Purchase or bring your own lunch. Call 301-766-2043 to reserve a seat.
