Mission Statement

The American Payroll Association is the professional society for Payroll Professionals. Founded in 1982 it is run by a professional staff under the direction of the Executive Director, the member President, and Board of Directors. The Association pursues the following objectives:

  1. To increase the Payroll Professional's skill level through education and mutual support.
  2. To obtain recognition for payroll work as practiced in today's business and legislative environments and as a professional discipline.
  3. To represent the Payroll Professional on the federal, state and local level.
  4. To provide public service education on payroll and employment issues.

Membership

APA membership has risen to over 22,000 Payroll Professionals and continues to grow, demonstrating the high level of interest on the part of the payroll community participating in the wide range of activities available to APA members.

Anyone engaged in payroll administration and/or related fields is eligible for APA membership. APA proudly represents a true cross section of the payroll profession made up predominantly of payroll managers from all 50 states, with a growing constituency in Puerto Rico, Canada, and other foreign nations, whose payroll informational needs are as diverse as the number of employees paid and as demanding as the number of states and countries in which they pay.
