Mountain States Payroll Professionals is an official chapter of the American Payroll Association that services payroll, human resources, benefits, and finance professionals in the greater Treasure Valley area.

The American Payroll Association (APA) was established in 1982 as an association dedicated to fostering educational growth and expanding the skill level of payroll professionals by providing educational training tools and mutual support to its nationwide membership of over 20,000.  The APA acts as the collective voice of its members and the industry in Washington D.C.  Derivative of the APA’s vision statement, the association strives “to create opportunities and forge a community by providing the education, skills, and resources necessary for payroll professionals to become successful leaders and strategic partners within their organizations.”  The association offers in-person payroll training conferences and seminars in many locations across the country.  The APA also publishes and maintains a complete library of professional publications, including various resource scripts and newsletters.
