The new year brought in a new MAX as we began our transformation to become metro Atlanta’s premiere membership association for workforce developers. This is an exciting next step for MAX as we further our role as a dynamic network to serve and connect workforce developers.
Special thanks to the more than 130 workforce developers who became MAX members in January 2021 through either individual or anchor investor memberships. And special thanks to our newest MAX Anchor, the Bobby Dodd Institute (BDI). BDI empowers people with differing abilities to maximize their potential by securing economic self-sufficiency, independence and inclusion within their communities. As a MAX Anchor, BDI will help shape MAX’s organizational direction, and we are grateful for their partnership and support.
Not a member of MAX yet? No worries! You can join MAX anytime in 2021 to be a part of our inaugural membership group. And the sooner you join, the sooner you can benefit from member-only benefits.
Says Gerlda Hines, Chief of Staff with the Georgia Department of Human Services about being connected through MAX: “MAX has been an instrumental resource for our agency. We have employees who participate in various MAX events, like the MAX Academy or MAX Minutes. For example, members of our Division of Child Support find these meetings beneficial for learning how to best connect our non-custodial parents who are underemployed or unemployed with helpful workforce development resources. MAX is also valuable due to the fact that as one of the largest state agencies, we continue to look for qualified employees through the MAX network.“

The Metro Atlanta eXchange for Workforce Solutions (MAX) was launched in December 2014 by a team of regional leaders who recognized that increased collaboration across the Atlanta region’s workforce development arena empowers all stakeholders to positively influence each other’s efforts and realize greater collective impacts through stronger cohesiveness. MAX has since served as a convener and connector for the Atlanta region’s workforce development community, pulling together all the players across the broad workforce system together in one place and on a regular basis. Indeed, MAX has developed into a dynamic network to serve and connect workforce developers.
