SCORE volunteers have special responsibilities, rights and privileges that originate from:
- The statutory laws and rules under which the SCORE volunteer program is established and conducted.
- The operational rules established by SCORE.
Each chapter is obliged to inform its volunteers of these rights and responsibilities, and each volunteer should be aware of them. Further, all available legal protections are afforded SCORE volunteers while conducting official SCORE business. Protections do not extend to non-SCORE activities.
