A new satellite office was opened in Laguna Beach on June 15, 2010. It was established to offer free counseling and the other services provided by SCORE to business owners and entrepreneurs located in the coastal south portion of Orange County. It is expected to serve people from as far south as San Clemente and as far north as Corona Del Mar and inland to Aliso Viejo and neighboring communities.

The office is managed by SCORE chapter member Jack Curtis who is a 39 year resident of the city. Counseling appointments are accepted on the first and third Tuesdays of each month. There are four one hour appointments available each counseling day, beginning at 9:00 am. Appointments can be scheduled by calling the Laguna Beach Chamber of Commerce at 949-494-1018 or by going to the SCORE website at

A joint effort by SCORE and the Laguna Beach Chamber of Commerce, the office is located in the Chamber facility at 357 Glenneyre Street in Laguna Beach. Parking at the library is free. In addition there is a parking facility on Glenneyre Street that is less than half a block from the Chamber office.

In the future, it is expected that counseling will be offered every Tuesday rather than the first and third Tuesdays. Furthermore, the possibility of holding workshops at the Susie Q Senior Center in Laguna Beach is likely.
