Check-In Procedures for SCORE Workshops.  All visitors are required to present a valid, government-issued photo ID and valid reason for entering, before receiving a visitor badge which will allow entry to the building.  What to Bring:  You must have a valid, government-issued, photo ID, with the same name as the name you registered with. NOTE: Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the workshop to allow time to pass through security and reach the training room.
SCORE DC is now holding more of our workshops outside our DC headquarters in an attempt to better serve the metropolitan area small business community.  We plan to rotate several workshops between our DC location, Arlington VA, and  Rockville MD.  Please note the location of the specific workshop for which you are registering.
