Power of Possibilities Summit to be Held October 24th

Last Updated on Oct 6, 2014 at 12:34pm | Economic Development
The Greater Cumberland Committee, in partnership with Garrett College and other regional organizations, is working to help improve the economic conditions of rural Appalachia through a new initiative called the Power of Possibilities (POP).
The Power of Possibilities project encompasses a focus on emerging industries, business collaboration and entrepreneurship to develop and advance the tri-state region of Garrett, Allegany, and Washington Counties in Maryland, Bedford and Somerset Counties in Pennsylvania, and Hampshire and Mineral Counties in West Virginia.

Join us for the keynote event, the Power of Possibilities Summit, on October 24th at Garrett College in McHenry, Maryland. Specifically designed with regional infrastructure and ecosystem entities in mind, this conference will offer a regional economic update, industry and government speakers, and a "toolkit" of resources to assist education, government, and non-profit community organizations for working with entrepreneurs.

Cost is $79 per individual and $5 per student.
