ABOUT THE PARTNERSHIP WITH SHRM-ATLANTA
Earlier this year, MAX and SHRM-Atlanta began an intentional effort to explore opportunities for partnership and collaboration. With SHRM-Atlanta representing human resource professionals (that is, those who are in demand of a ready workforce) and MAX representing workforce development professionals (that is, those who help supply a ready workforce), there are exciting synergies to explore for fostering stronger connections and alignment amongst those served by both entities.
