Thank you Arnold Sandness for a terrific job!
After 19 years of distinguished service, Arnold Sandness will leave behind an impressive contribution to the SCORE organization when he leaves the area to relocate to Florida. These contributions include, Chapter Chair, Dayton Chapter of SCORE from 2000-2002, District Director, Southern Ohio SCORE, 2004-2010, and Chair of the Dayton SCORE non-profit initiative.
When asked about his most significant contribution to SCORE Arnold said “It was leading the Dayton Chapter to National Chapter of the year.” In 2002, as Chair of Dayton SCORE he led the Chapter to be named National SCORE Chapter of the year by the SCORE Association and the SBA. He added, as he recalled the experience” I travelled to Washington DC with my wife, Marilyn, to receive the award and be honored by the SCORE Board of Directors. This was the highlight of my SCORE career.” Harry Rhode, District Director of SCORE in 2002, commented on Arnold’s leadership when Dayton SCORE was named Chapter of the year. He said “Dayton has a terrific Chapter Chairman and a terrific chapter”.
The variety of positions Arnold has held after joining SCORE has helped to establish the organization as the premier provider of business counseling and membership services to small businesses in the Dayton area. Arnold said that the most satisfying aspect of the work that he has done as a volunteer was to “have the Chapter prosper, help achieve the goals of National SCORE and enjoy the success of the Dayton Chapter non- profit initiative"
Non-Profit Awarded the "Spirit Award"
At the Southern Ohio SCORE Meeting in Wilmington Ohio on May 29, Dayton SCORE was awarded the "Spirit Award"... In Recognition of the Creation, Execution and Sharing of Non-Profit Workshops. The award plaque was presented by Southern Ohio District Director Mary Jane Good to Carol and Wally Nugent who represented the entire Dayton SCORE Non-Profit Team. The five workshop series (Strategic Planning, Board Development, Financial Management, Fundraising and Marketing), as of June 11, will have been presented six times since the fall of 2012.
The series is targeted to the management and board of directors of local small non-profit organizations, and has been very well received with an average workshop attendance of 32 people. Importantly, the workshops have resulted in a large number of mentoring relationships for the Team with local non-profits.
