On behalf of the entire Memphis Area Association of Governments (MAAG) membership and executive board, it is my honor and pleasure to welcome you to our website. MAAG is an organization promoting and assisting in economic and community development in Fayette, Lauderdale, Tipton and Shelby counties in Tennessee, DeSoto County in Mississippi; and Crittenden County in Arkansas. As your partner in accessing federal and state resources, we hope you use MAAG as an organization to help you enhance, strengthen and sustain your community.
Among one of MAAG’s many goals is to cultivate and bridge individual resources in order to strengthen our competitiveness in this global economy. We believe that a strong regional presence within this economy expands opportunities for our individual members to enhance their citizens’ community quality of life.
As you examine our website, please take note of MAAG’s many accomplishments and the growing number of opportunities that we can assist both governments and businesses in. As we move ahead, MAAG continues to search for new ways to assist communities by helping to identify and implementing their vision for a better tomorrow.
Please join us as we work together for a better future.
Chairman Hugh Davis
