Power of 32

The Power of 32, launched in May 2009, is a two-year process to provide an opportunity for every resident of the 32-county, 4-state region to participate in creating a shared vision for the region’s best future. The 32 counties included in the visioning project- fifteen in southwestern Pennsylvania, ten in northern West Virginia, five in eastern Ohio, and two in western Maryland – represent the economic region centered on metropolitan Pittsburgh.

Power of 32 is a regional visioning initiative that will involve tens of thousands of people across 32 counties in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Ohio and West Virginia in creating a shared vision for the region’s future. Through the Power of 32, we can think differently about our region’s challenges – our role in the global economy, our quality of life, and our opportunities – and act in ways that set a new direction for the future. Every one of the 4 million people in our region can participate in the process and have our voices heard. Power of 32 will work with you to make tough choices to create a prioritized regional agenda, and work together to make positive change.

In the next month, the Power of 32 will also be looking for people to help coordinate the project across our region. They will be looking first for regional points of contact to help with outreach. The description/application link for the Outreach Coordinator Opportunity is here.
