About Us

The Silicon Valley Chapter was founded on August 23, 1983 and was the first Chapter of its kind in the Greater San Francisco Bay Area. At that time we were known as the South Bay Area Chapter. In 2011 we changed our name to Silicon Valley Chapter, after the readily identifiable area we live and work in. Our membership includes many large and small employers, persons with many years of Payroll experience and persons just starting out in Payroll.

We hold our meetings or participate in educational Payroll opportunities each month from February through October and celebrate our profession each year in November. In 1991, the South Bay Area Chapter requested and was awarded a Proclamation granting the month of August as Payroll Professional Month in Santa Clara County.

It is the goal to provide the following to our members:

  • Educational workshops and meetings
  • Informative industry speakers
  • Networking opportunities with other Payroll Professionals
  • Support in the Certified Payroll Professional program including via Study Groups
  • Educational Scholarship program
  • Monthly Update Bulletin including access to Job Board listings
  • CEUs and credit hours towards recertification

We look forward to you joining our organization and allowing us to grow through your experience as well as allow us to provide you invaluable opportunities towards your growth as a Payroll Professional.
