Conduct and report at least one face-to-face contact per year with members or staffers of the U.S. House of Representative or Senate who represent the area where the chapter is located. Coordinate with other SCORE chapters within the district or state whenever feasible.
The purpose of these meetings is to share SCORE’s impact on the communities SCORE is serving. Share personal stories from clients bolstered with local impact data. You can find your local impact data in the Volunteer Center.
SCORE Volunteers should not lobby nor advocate. These meetings are conducted to ensure that our elected representatives know about SCORE’s local activities and impact. Additionally, SCORE Volunteers should not lobby or support any organization on behalf of SCORE or in their capacity as a SCORE Member.
Ensure that congressional meetings are reported to SCORE Headquarters. Email Sandra.email@example.com to report Government Relation activity. Include the date, names of SCORE volunteer, names of elected member or staff, and conversation summary.
