We Will Keep You Informed!

The Chapter recognizes the need for Recertification Credit Hours (RCHs) to maintain professional payroll credentials (CPPs and FPCs).  Whenever Free, discounted or reduced cost Webinars or Seminars are provided that provide these Credits, or information vital and timely to the Payroll Professional, a "Blast Email" is sent to the General Membership.

Our Members will receive "Blast Emails" with late breaking news and timely information about items that will affect you and your job as a Payroll Professional. 

Urgent news items will also be posted on our website.


We publish a newsletter that will be sent to you as a member of the Susquehanna Valley Chapter of the APA. This newsletter is published by our organization and will feature upcoming events, critical legislative changes, fast facts about payroll topics and other items of interest.

Further Your Professional Education and Credentials

Annual Study Group Credentialing 
Certified Payroll Professional (CPP) 
Fundamentals of Payroll (FPC) 

Each year, typically from June to August, the Susquehanna Valley Chapter will sponsor a Study Group to assist Chapter Members, as well as Non-Members (local payroll professionals) in preparing for testing for their CPP or FPC credentials.  The courses (including a Review Course) are taught by Members with the CPP credentials and are provided at a very low cost.  The Payroll Source is used as a Study Guide.

Annual National American Payroll Association “Preparing For Year End” Seminar 

This Seminar is provided each year, typically in November or December, and is conveniently located in the Susquehanna Valley Area to eliminate the need for payroll professionals in the area to travel to the Philadelphia or Baltimore area.  

 This is one of the many ways we provide top-notch payroll education resources to our membership more conveniently and at a more significant cost savings.

Meetings / Seminars

We offer a broad range of speakers that include subject areas such as Multi-State issues, Unemployment Compensation, Paycards, Identity Theft, Stress Management, Employee Retention, Local Tax Issues, etc... 

The Susquehanna Valley Chapter of the APA also co-sponsors the Annual PA Statewide Conference.  This conference normally takes place in September or October and alternates between Harrisburg, Pittsburgh and the Philadelphia area.
