The Grand Forks Chapter of SCORE has been recognized as the highest-rated chapter in the United States in 2021 in its Client Engagement Survey for the second year in a row.
The survey, conducted by the independent auditing firm PricewaterhouseCoopers, is funded by the SCORE Foundation and provides results based on client information for all 253 SCORE chapters.
“We are both grateful and humbled to be recognized by our clients in this way,” Queen McCartney, 2022 co-chair of SCORE Grand Forks, said. SCORE Grand Forks received an overall score of 4.64, which was just under its 2020 score of 4.69, and achieved near-perfect ratings from clients on six of the eleven questions in the survey. “Our 27 volunteers have a passion for business,” Curt Sandberg, 2021 co-chair of SCORE Grand Forks, said.
“They are committed to the success of Grand Forks, East Grand Forks, and the surrounding area small businesses. We are also involved in a cooperative effort with small business partners (SBA, SBDC, VBOC, and WBC) to offer many workshops throughout the year.” For more information about the survey or about starting, growing, or selling a small business, call 1-800-634- 0245 or visit www.score.org. - Grand Forks Herald
