About Us

The Allegheny Conference on Community Development is one of the United States’ foremost civic leadership organizations. For more than 75 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.

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 250 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.
