Central Chamber, Palm Beach SCORE Partner Up To Help Area Entrepreneurs

The Central Palm Beach County Chamber of Commerce has forged a new strategic alliance with Palm Beach SCORE.

As part of this partnership, members of the chamber will have the opportunity to receive small business counseling once a week from a certified SCORE business mentor beginning Oct. 1.

There will be no cost to chamber members for this service from SCORE, originally the Service Corps of Retired Executives.

“This is the Year of Small Business for the chamber,” CEO Mary Lou Bedford said. “We are excited to make our office space available to support this outstanding benefit to our members, and are very thankful to Palm Beach SCORE.”

Penny Pompei, incoming chair of Palm Beach SCORE, is happy about the initiative. “We couldn’t be more pleased with the new strategic alliance between our two organizations,” she said. “With synergistic missions, we can now work together to help Palm Beach County businesses achieve greater success.”

Chamber members will enjoy other perks as a result of this collaboration, including discounts on all Palm Beach SCORE workshops. For more info., call (561) 790-6200 or e-mail info@cpbchamber.com.
