With SCORE, you will be part of an extended team of volunteers representing all facets of the business community.

Some volunteers have worked as executives, some have been entrepreneurs and small business owners, while others have experience in universities, government and the military.

If you are interested in serving as a mentor and being a part of the Northwest Montana SCORE Chapter or just learning more about SCORE, please plan to attend.

A representative from SCORE’s national office will be speaking, as will State District Director Michelle Johnston and Assistant State District Director Evelyn Halvorson. If you are planning to attend or you have questions, contact Michelle Johnston at 406-442-5966.
