About Us

The Houston Chapter of the American Payroll Association (HCAPA) was founded over 25 years ago. Since then, the HCAPA has offered classes for students to become FPC/CPP certified.  HCAPA also holds monthly membership meetings for which members receive RCH credits. The monthly meetings feaure a payroll relevant topic and provide networking opportunties as well. Members enable our chapter to grow and provide additional opportunities to our colleagues and the community.

The Houston Chapter is an organization made up of payroll professionals throughout Houston and the surrounding area. Our group demographics range from "new to payroll" individuals to the veterans of our profession. Our group is dynamic and energetic and all have driving personalities that make our organization special. HCAPA is recognized locally, statewide, and nationally, year after year. Our founding members saw the need to bring payroll professionals together and educate them in the payroll profession. While members come and go, the Houston Chapter has a strong foundation of people with a quest for continuing education and recognition that goes beyond the bounds of just another professional organization. Our community service opportunities put our members in touch with real issues and other non-profit organizations. We are doing their part to make Houston a better place to live. We offer many opportunities for payroll professionals to grow, share their knowledge, and network with their fellow payroll professionals day after day. Many of our members have been active not only in our local chapter but at the state and national levels as well. We have past presidents of the National APA in our membership roster who have been recognized by the National APA for their service and dedication.
