President’s Message

I am honored to welcome our new and returning members as your 2024-2025 Orange County Chapter of the American Payroll Association (OCCAPA) President. As I enter my first year as President of OCCPA, I notice that our Chapter has never been more relevant for our members and followers, payroll professionals, and HR professionals! You make our Chapter strong and amazing. We are a Chapter that provides abundant opportunities to learn, teach, mentor, and share top quality professional key note speakers. A chapter that enables you to advocate, brainstorm, give back to your employer, community, network, and socialize with friends and payroll colleagues all over the country.

The ever evolving payroll environment requires that we help our members navigate through new and increasingly complex payroll laws and regulations, which profoundly impact the companies for which we work, our communities, and the payroll profession. We contribute to our Chapter’s successes by introducing innovative topics, providing our members with professional development, and networking opportunities. We will continue with our Zoom virtual meetings, as well as a few “In Person “events.

Thank you members for your continued participation and enthusiasm in our chapter, and sponsors for your incredible support and contributions. Please take advantage of all the resources OCCAPA provides, as past and current members have voiced their benefits in their professional development. We look forward to some fun and exciting learning/networking events that you will not want to miss this year!

Lastly, I’d like to give a special shout-out of appreciation to our Chapter Board of Directors and to PayrollOrg for all the resources, guidance and support they provide. Wishing you endless opportunities, brand-new beginnings, and hitting new goals. I am looking forward to possibly seeing all of you and meeting you soon.
