POWER OF 32
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. 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, we will also be looking for people to work with us to help coordinate the project across our region. We will be looking first for regional points of contact to help with outreach. The description/application link for the Outreach Coordinator Opportunity is: http://sites.google.com/a/powerof32.org/power-of-32/district-coordinator-application.
