QChamber has partnered with the following organizations:

SCORE (Service Corps of Retired Executives)

Score offers the nation's largest, network of free, expert business mentors.  

If you're just starting a business, SCORE mentors can provide the practical action plan, education and tools you need to open your doors and establish a customer base.  Already own a business?  Volunteer mentors can help identify ways to increase profit, improve employee and customer satisfaction and achieve work/life balance.

With SCORE, you can have the honest, confidential and sometimes tough conversations about managing money, motivating your team and other business topics.

They can be your confidant, your cheerleader and your accountability partner on your path to achieving success.  

SCORE counselors are available the third Wednesday of each month at 9:00 a.m., 10:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. at the Quinnipiac Chamber Office, 50 North Main Street, Wallingford.  Please contact Maribel at 203-269-9891 or via email at maribel@quinncham.com to schedule an appointment.
