Local SCORE Branches Reach Platinum Status
The South Sound Tacoma, Bellingham, Spokane and TriCities SCORE chapters were recognized as a platinum chapter at the annual national SCORE convention held in St. Louis.
SCORE has more than 300 chapters, and only the top 10 percent can claim the status of being a platinum chapter, which is considered the highest recognition a chapter can receive among SCORE branches.
TriCities had the highest customer satisfaction index in the nation with Tacoma a very close second.
