A member of SCORE's National Advisory Board on Monday performed a chapter audit of York SCORE.

The national organization on Wednesday announced the local chapter received a platinum rating-the highest rating available to the 334 chapters across the country.

York SCORE, a nonprofit that educates entrepreneurs and helps small businesses, was evaluated in several areas: planning, client service quality, workshop activities, organizational leadership, fundraising and financial management.

York SCORE's workshop activities, industry roundtables and its Simple Steps for Starting a Business series were all cited in earning the organization a high rating.
