The Greater Cumberland Committee, in partnership with Garrett College, the Garrett County Department of Economic Development, and other regional organizations, is working to help improve the economic conditions of rural Appalachia through a new initiative called the Power of Possibilities. The Power of Possibilities (POP) 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.
POP offers annual conferences and related business training and mentoring opportunities. The first conference was held on October 24, 2014, and conferences continue to be held each year.
