Lead Organization:

Regional Process Facilitated by the Greater Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce

"A regional view blends into everything we do as a chamber — businesses, communities and people. We’re working regionally, we understand it, it only makes sense. It makes us more attractive to the outside world. We need to get beyond our boundaries."

– Ron Aldom, Executive Director of the Somerset County Chamber of Commerce, Power of 32 steering committee
