Welcome to the Houston Chapter of the apa website!

Welcome to the award-winning website of the Houston Chapter of the American Payroll Association, also known as HCAPA.

The HCAPA is an autonomous and independent chapter of the national American Payroll Association.  This local chapter promotes educational and professional networking opportunities for payroll professionals in the Greater Houston and surrounding areas, as well as at the state and national levels.  The monthly membership meetings, which are held February to November, feature speakers who are experts on a variety of payroll-related topics.  The government representatives and payroll vendors who attend the meetings contribute expert participation and resources.  The chapter offers instructional classes to prepare for the two payroll certification exams; i.e., Certified Payroll Professional (CPP) and Fundamental Payroll Certification (FPC).  These classes are offered in the Spring and Fall and allow students to partner with others who are certified.  The chapter provides additional educational opportunities throughout the year with seminars and conferences on various professional development topics, including the latest legislative changes that affect the payroll industry. All chapter events allow individuals to earn recertification credits (RCH) to support the CPP or FPC status.

Becoming a member of the chapter is your first step toward growth and development as a payroll professional. To become a member, get more information at the Join tab above, or you may contact any member of the Board of Directors. In addition to individual membership, we also offer the Sponsor Membership status for companies or vendors who support the payroll profession.

Thank you for visiting our website.  We look forward to meeting you at one of our many educational events.
