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.
In January 2021, MAX began its journey to become metro Atlanta’s premier professional membership association for workforce developers! We would be honored for you to join our inaugural membership group.

The MAX Factor
“In 2016, I made a choice to leave my career industry after 22 years. I began a career to direct and establish the workforce development effort at City of Refuge. It was a steep learning curve and I could not have done it without the help of the Metro Atlanta eXchange for Workforce Solutions (MAX)!
MAX provided me with mentors, employer relationships, Workforce Partners and general knowledge to develop a successful program at City of Refuge. The MAX meetings have guided my strategies to align with the needs of metro Atlanta and to serve as a partner to accomplish more than we could working alone.
In 2020, we will have placed 500 underemployed & unemployed into a combination of entry level and high demand career initiative positions. Thank you MAX for helping us attain that goal in a pandemic year!”
Jeannie Ross, Director, Good Works Employment Center, City of Refuge
“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.“
