SCORE Wichita Celebrates National Women's Small Business Month with Ann Patterson, Our Incoming SCORE Wichita Chair!
SCORE Wichita is proud to announce our new incoming Chair, Ann Patterson! Ann helped oversee & coordinate areas of our Women SCORE Higher "Becoming a Fearless Female" virtual conference in 2021 and brings invaluable experience to her new role at our local Wichita SCORE chapter. We sat down and asked Ann a few questions to learn a bit more about her background.
- What do you look forward to in your future role as Chair of SCORE Wichita? As the incoming Chair for Wichita's SCORE chapter, I look forward to building strength within the organization and expanding its reach throughout the area.
- What past career experiences do you feel will help you in your new role at SCORE? Running and growing a business for almost 25 years will help me in organizing and coordinating all the various parts of SCORE. Not only do we help clients start and build their businesses by both mentoring and sponsoring workshops, but we also market our services to the area.
- You've been involved with other charitable organizations in the community throughout your career. Which nonprofits are you currently working with? My involvement with nonprofits has been lifelong. Right now with Habitat for Humanity, I serve on a national council, a state board, and our local Habitat chapter. In the past, I have volunteered with my college alumni board, church, children's school, Junior League, and numerous other organizations.
- What changes for improvement do you foresee in 2022 for SCORE Wichita? The chapter hopes to grow, become more diverse, and continue to positively impact businesses in the community.
