At our August convening of the MAX Leadership Network, network members heard from Alex Ruder with the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta’s Community and Economic Development Department about benefits cliffs and their impact on career choices. Ruder reviewed recent research by the Fed and others on the impediments to career advancement due to the potential loss of benefits that is associated with such advancement. Special thanks to Atlanta Fed for hosting our meeting.

The MAX Leadership Network is comprised of workforce leaders who convene regularly to strengthen our collective capacity as workforce developers to meet the needs that employers have for a ready workforce. Members of this network come together to jointly do the following:
- Learn more about who is doing what, where, and for whom
- Explore common issues and opportunities, and share ideas for building solutions
- Make new connections and catalyze partnerships
- Keep each other updated and informed on ways we can help each other
The MAX Leadership Network will convene again on October 7th.
