The Power of Bridging Borders

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 in the future.

Power of 32 is a regional visioning project and collaborative initiative to leverage our potential and compete as a region to increase our financial, political and intellectual power.

By bridging borders and recognizing our shared challenges and opportunities, we are committed to improving the future of 32+ counties in Maryland, Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia.

Based on extensive community input, we defined a clear vision for our future and are implementing 14 initiatives in the areas of economy, education, environment, community and people, government, transportation and infrastructure to help make that shared vision a reality.

Our initiatives are being implemented by teams of leaders in business, government and nonprofits ⎯ working together to connect across places and perspectives in the region to inspire new ways of thinking, build strong relationships, and generate the commitment required for the region to thrive.
