About ChooseATL

We launched ChooseATL with one goal: to attract and retain next-gen talent to metro Atlanta. Since then, we've reached millions of young professionals and left them inspired by our city's unique mix of careers, community and culture. 

Inspired, Organic & Grassroots

A group of ATL-enthusiasts came together and developed a grassroots movement to shine a light on what makes Atlanta special.

Like most big ideas, their passion-filled initiative was just getting started.

Scaling Up

The group took the idea to us, the Metro Atlanta Chamber (MAC). We're a 160-year-old economic development organization representing businesses, colleges and universities, nonprofits and more across metro Atlanta.

Established, but also tuned in to what's next, we hired a few full-time employees to lead what is now a division of MAC called ChooseATL.
