Our meeting agenda includes speakers on a wide variety of payroll-related topics, as well as other topics of general interest to the payroll professional, which provides you with an opportunity to earn recertification credit hours (RCH's). Vendors are also invited to participate, allowing them to offer their payroll-related products and services. Please check our calendar for updates and meeting information.
