2022 Elections!!!



Volunteer needed!

There are three open board positions we need volunteers for. 

  • 1. President
  • 2. Treasurer
  • 3. Secretary. 


The Chapter needs your help!  We need a Volunteer for the President, Treasurer and secretary! The Chapter cannot exist and stay associated with American Payroll Association unless we have a President, Treasurer and Secretary on the Board.  This does not require a lot of extra time, we meet 1-3 times a year virtually or onsite to discuss chapter business and upcoming events.  For just a few hours a year you can join the board and make a difference!  This looks great to your current employers as well as on your resume.    

If you are interested or have any questions please contact Patrick Luddy (President) PFL@Gatewaysearch.com
