(TGCC) is a regional non-profit, business-based organization serving five counties in southwestern Pennsylvania, far western Maryland and north central West Virginia. We primarily serve Somerset and Bedford Counties in Pennsylvania, Allegany and Garrett Counties in Maryland and Mineral County in West Virginia. TGCC focuses on projects of regional relevance in the areas of economic development, transportation, education, energy and natural resources and next generation leadership.
Since the beginning, our motto, To create one region, with one vision, for one future, has served as our north star and has been the guiding principle for TGCC’s program of work. Our ability to think and plan for the future of our region with wisdom, imagination and with the long view in mind, has been integral to the success of our signature projects. Our work in convening leaders, cultivating and nurturing important relationships and collaborating for the greater good, recognizes that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts, and that we must truly work together if we are to achieve a robust regional economy made up of vibrant and prosperous communities.
How shall we work together for the greater good? As we near the beginning of a new decade and the celebration of TGCC’s 20th anniversary, this important question continues to inform the vision and mission of this organization, which for nearly two decades has served as the only regionally-focused organization serving the 5-county, tri-state region.
