The Allegheny-Blue Ridge Alliance has formalized the organization by the adoption of bylaws and the creation of a Board of Directors.  Earlier this year ABRA incorporated with the Commonwealth of Virginia, its stated mission being “to protect the heritage, resources and economy of the Allegheny-Blue Ridge region.”

The initial Board of Directors and elected officers are:

  • Allen Johnson (Chair), Eight-Rivers Council, Dunmore, WV
