Summer is here and the activities are in full swing. Dayton Score is also engaged in a wide range of activities. We have completed half of the Small Business Development series classes and the full spring series of Non-Profit classes. I’d like to encourage you to visit our workshop webpage and see if any of the remaining classes would help you take your business to the next level.

We have some exciting new classes planned for the fall that you may find helpful. For the first time, Dayton Score will offer a seminar for “Women in Business” in October. This is an excellent opportunity to share experiences and network. We will be presenting a new session of our business tune up series emphasizing minority business in Dayton in August. We will offer a full set of Non-Profit seminars starting in September. It’s happening at Dayton Score so be a part of it!

Volunteer Information

May Luncheon

Mr. Jeffrey S. Senney, Attorney at Law, with Pickrel, Schaeffer and Ebeling, a Legal Professional Association, addressed SCORE members at the May, 25th luncheon. Mr. Senny gave a very detailed presentation on starting a new business, from basic planning to possible problems and opportunities. When he discussed the topic of business partnership, he stated, “You are typically better off confronting problems up front when you and your partner are still friends rather than wait to problem solve or sort it out on the backend”. He covered other common mistakes to avoid, such as, not naming yourself as statutory agent and having a tie breaker when you have a two person 50/50 ownership in a business.

The SCORE volunteer profile person of the month was Mr. Jack Culp, Dayton Chapter Secretary. Jack stated, “I was attracted to SCORE because I was immersed in a family culture of independent business owners. It is in my genes”. He added, “I want to help people live the American dream”.

Karen Durand, Assistant District Director, SCORE, presented Dayton SCORE with the Distinguished Service Award. Charles Anderson, Dayton SCORE Chapter Chair, went on to report that Dayton SCORE is on track and ahead of schedule for all planned initiatives.
