The Civic League
The Civic League for Regional Atlanta is an independent, nonpartisan, nonprofit organization that is educating, engaging and empowering the people of metropolitan Atlanta to address and solve regional issues.
|Atlanta Regional Commission|
In May of 2012, the Atlanta Regional Commission (ARC) voted to incorporate arts and culture as a part of its regional planning efforts on behalf of the 10-county Atlanta region. In doing so, ARC assumes the role of the Metropolitan Atlanta Arts and Culture Coalition (MAACC), to promote the Atlanta region as a premier center for the arts and culture.
