District 480 just concluded their annual Leadership Matters and Recognition conference. The event had 35 Chapter leaders from 8 district chapters. Attending were Cathy Walton, Southeast Regional VP, and Kathryn Kelly, SCORE HQ's Director of Volunteer Engagement, who presented all SCORE Lifelong learning programs. Hannah Fernandez ADD from Chicago gave an outstanding presentation, "How to Recruit and Maintain Working Volunteers." Other topics included Effective Leadership and Succession planning presented by Mike Lewis District Director, and Doug Janson, ADD.
District 480 has a number of long term volunteers. Two volunteers were honored: Kit Werremeyer from the Tampa chapter celebrated his 20th year. Joseph “Spike” Bywater celebrated his 24th year, from the Central Florida chapter.
District 480 also celebrated SCORE Pasco Hernando chapter 439, the 2022 District Chapter of the Year. Congratulations to co-chairs William Gelbach and Darlene Rowe and all the members of chapter 439.
