American Payroll Association (APA) definition and meaning


The American Payroll Association is an organization that provides education and advocacy for payroll professionals in the United States. Individuals who join the APA enjoy access to a range of educational resources, including ebooks and webinars, as well as conferences and seminars. APA members can also earn multiple certification credentials, network with other certified payroll professionals, and access exclusive new career opportunities.

 

More about the APA and what it offers


Founded in 1982, the APA headquarters is located in San Antonio, Texas. But there are over 50 chapters operating across the country. In addition to offering payroll curriculums and certifications to its members, the APA also publishes “PayTech,” a monthly magazine that reports industry trends and best practices, as well as new and pending legislation concerning payroll.

I joined the local chapter of the American Payroll Association immediately after opening my bookkeeping business because it provides so many opportunities to network with experienced payroll professionals.
