BY: Julianna Hunt | 10/29/19

Each year, the American Payroll Association gives its local chapters an opportunity to share their successes in the Annual Chapter Contests. These four contests serve as a tool for chapters to self-evaluate their operations and also help the APA stay “in the know” with all its chapters’ accomplishments. In 2019, a total of 22 chapters won an award and received national recognition during the 37th Annual Congress. Learn more about each contest below:
