The Allegheny Conference on Community Development and its Affiliates – the Greater Pittsburgh Chamber of Commerce, the Pennsylvania Economy League of Greater Pittsburgh and the Pittsburgh Regional Alliance (PRA) – work together to improve the economy and the quality of life in southwestern Pennsylvania.
Founded in 1944, the Allegheny Conference on Community Development is one of the nation's leading economic and community development organizations, combining strong private sector leadership with commitment from public sector partners. Our strategic focus is creating a more competitive economic climate and marketing the Pittsburgh region for investment, job creation and talent. The Conference relies upon the Regional Investors Council – leaders of more than 300 companies and organizations – to provide time, talent and resources to advance our Agenda.
Three affiliated organizations, each staffed by the Conference, provide research and analysis, advocacy and marketing to realize the vision of the Conference leadership.
