About Us

"As chair of the Allegheny Conference, I am excited about the possibilities for our region. We can fulfill the promise of our programs to strengthen communities, improve the economic climate to attract job creating investment, build better transportation and infrastructure systems, and develop an even more competitive workforce. But to succeed, we must do a better job of connecting people to opportunity throughout our region. And we must do it now. If we share a vision and work together, we can make it happen." – Rich Harshman - Chair, Allegheny Conference on Community Development and Chairman, President and CEO, ATI 

Our Mission

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.
