Metro Atlanta is a premier destination for business professionals and their families.

The metro Atlanta region is home to more than 5.3 million people and nearly 150,000 businesses, a world-class airport, multiple parks and green space, competitive schools and numerous amenities for entertainment, sports and restaurants that all offer a top-tier quality of life. From its diverse economy, global access, abundant talent and low costs of business and lifestyle, metro Atlanta is a great place to call "home." Residents have easy access to arts, culture, sports and nightlife, and can experience all four seasons, with mild winters that rarely require a snow shovel.

MAC’s Public Policy team, along with our partners, have worked to improve the quality of life in Atlanta by saving Grady Memorial Hospital, launching the Commission for School Board Excellence and ensuring our water future.
