Established in 1982, the American Payroll Association (APA) is the nation's leader in payroll education, publications, and training. As a non-profit association with more than 20,000 members, the APA conducts nearly 300 payroll training seminars and conferences across the country and online each year, and publishes a complete library of printed and electronic resource texts and newsletters. Every year, more than 18,000 professionals attend APA training sessions. The APA is also highly respected as the industry's collective voice in Washington, D.C. and state capitals on payroll-related regulations and legislation.
APA membership is open to anyone engaged in payroll administration and/or related fields. 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.
