MAC is here to work on – and solve – challenges facing our growing region.

There is a direct link between solving challenges, job growth and the economy. In public policy, we tackle critical issues in our region such as transportation, water, workforce and education. Over the years, MAC’s Public Policy team, along with our partners, have addressed issues such as changing our state’s flag, saving Grady Memorial Hospital, launching the Commission for School Board Excellence and ensuring our water future.
