Presidents Message

Our chapter mission is to provide payroll and human resource professionals a forum to collectively further their professional growth and education.

We have many events on our calendar for 2015 including our bimonthly meetings covering topics in the payroll industry including technology, best practices, career development, legislative updates and new payroll solutions delivered by expert speakers in the industry.  Our next meeting is April 18, 2015 and our guest speaker is James F. Eaton, III, CPA, MBA.  He will speak about the basics of ACA and the annual reporting that is due after the close of 2015. 

We have scheduled our next session for CPP (Certified Payroll professional) course review for January 2016.  This will be held at the Residence Inn BWI.  This review includes in person training and webinars to help each enrolled candidate graduate with this honorable designation.

Each year we hold our annual Congress here in Baltimore to encompass a full day of excellent speakers on the latest payroll news, products and updated legislation. This year, are theme was Payroll Under the Big Top.  Bruce Phipps, CPP was our main attraction speaking on Disaster Recovery. All of our meetings are approved by the National APA for RCH credits for those attending the meetings.
