SCORE has named Rhode Island its Northeast Region Chapter of the Year in recognition of the chapter's commitment to outstanding service in helping entrepreneurs start and grow businesses in the past year. The chapter achieved success by focusing on the needs of their small business clients, partnering with more than 30 other organizations in the community, and achieving one of the highest market penetrations and client satisfaction ratings in the country.

"Rhode Island is the model SCORE chapter for how we operate today. They are actively engaged in all facets of their community and partnering with any organization that help further SCORE's mission," said Mark Cutler, Regional Vice President SCORE Northeast.
