The Allegheny Conference on Community Development is one of the United States’ foremost civic leadership organizations. For more than 70 years, the Conference has been bringing together public and private sector leaders. Through the support of the Regional Investors Council, we are improving the economic future and quality of life of the 10-county Pittsburgh region.
We are regarded nationally as a model for setting a vision and building consensus to achieve regional goals. Our organization epitomizes “leadership through partnership” that crosses geographic and political lines. On behalf of the Conference’s more than 300 Regional Investors Council members, we analyze competitive issues, advocate for improvements and market the region globally to encourage business investment that creates jobs and attracts talented people to fill them.
The Conference is the parent of three affiliate organizations. Each plays a vital role in carrying out the Conference’s work.
Together, the Conference and its affiliates identify competitiveness issues holding our region back, develop policy solutions to address these issues and market an ever-improving region to employers and talented individuals. Read more about what we’re working on here.
