Metro Atlanta Chess Partners, Inc. (MACP) is a 501 (c) 3 charitable organization founded by Thomas and Tonya Clem in 2015.  MACP is a U.S. Chess Federation affiliate that hosts sanctioned/non-sanctioned chess tournaments throughout the year.



We believe the basic skills needed to live a more productive life continue to be those of decision-making, problem-solving, critical thinking, reasoning and self-discipline. Playing chess helps children academically, which positively impacts quality of life.
