Since April 2021 in the height of the pandemic, the 6 SCORE Chapters in the Hudson Valley, NY (Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Ulster and Westchester) have collaborated to consistently deliver monthly webinars. As a group we determine the topics that are relevant to our client base, and each chapter is
assigned the responsibility to arrange a presenter for a chosen topic and host the webinar.
Since April 2022, our neighboring chapters of Queens, Staten Island and Long Island have joined in this initiative. Below is a list of the topics, registrants and attendees for all the webinars presented in FY 2022.
We have already started the process of determining webinars and chapter sponsors for the new year.
In addition to the webinar collaboration, our One SCORE approach has enabled all of our chapters to routinely reach out to each other for assistance with co-mentoring or transferring an MRE to ensure the client is best served. There was a period of time when one of the Chapters was low on mentor capacity due to turnover and all the other chapters stepped up to accept transfers to serve our clients.
We believe not only we have the clear intention of promoting a One SCORE, we are executing it routinely.
**The SCORE Hudson Valley Chapters now makeup the newly formed Hudson Valley District, led by DD Bridgette McFarland, and ADD Bill Midgley.**
