Welcome to the North Carolina APA Chapter

Welcome to our local chapter of the American Payroll Association! We strive to provide the most current information possible to make your payroll efforts more efficient and precise. Please enjoy your visit and come back often, as information is always being added.

The North Carolina State Chapter of the American Payroll Association was founded in December, 1987. We currently enjoy a membership of over 200 payroll professionals from across North Carolina representing organizations of a wide variety of sizes and types.

Our chapter has changed our meeting times this year to monthly in the central Triangle during March - October 2020. Meetings are held on the third Thursday of these months and meetings are scheduled for either four hours or eight hours. Programming includes speakers on a wide variety of payroll-related topics, as well as other topics of general interest to the payroll professional, which provide you with an opportunity to earn CPP/FPC recertification credits.

Our sister chapters are located in Charlotte, NC, and was chartered in July, 1995. You may find out more about the Charlotte chapter by clicking here.  The Triad Chapter is located in Greensboro, NC and was chartered in June, 2008.  You can find more information by clicking here.

Our chapter also co-hosts the annual Carolinas Payroll Conference in Myrtle Beach with the Charlotte Chapter, the South Carolina Chapter, the Triad Chapter and the Western Piedmont Chapter.
