About Us

Founded in 2002, the Metro Atlanta Payroll Association (MAPA) is an autonomous chapter of the American Payroll Association.  We strive to offer education, motivation, and support to Atlanta area professionals seeking to begin or advance their Payroll careers. 

Annual community outreach projects are sponsored by MAPA in conjunction with National Payroll Week.  These outings satisfy our members’ desire to “do good” and have fun at the same time.

CPP/FPC certification classes, quarterly meetings, and the bi-annual “Georgia Payroll Symposium” are presented by MAPA.  These sessions provide excellent educational opportunities to Certified Payroll Professionals seeking RCH's or anyone interested in keeping up to date with the latest regulations and compliance issues.

MAPA is fortunate to have members who have been recognized by the APA as leaders in the Payroll profession.   We are proud to count among our membership Prism Award, Payroll Hall of Fame and Meritorious Service Award winners.  A few of the many national-level activities in which our members participate are the National Speakers Bureau, Congress, CHAMPS and Hotline Referral Service. 

We are honored to welcome members from businesses in many industries with employee populations from 10 to 10,000+.  Network, Mentor, Learn, Lead.  MAPA Road to Success with us!
