About Us

The Southeast Louisiana Chapter of the American Payroll Association is part of the 150 plus Local Chapters in metropolitan areas nationwide sponsoring payroll-related meetings throughout the year. Like all local chapters, the Southeast Louisiana Chapter operates autonomously within the American Payroll Association national guidelines.

Our local chapter was founded in 1984 by Mr. James C. Maumus, as the Chapter Coordinator and the first President. We are a non-profit organization dedicated to enhance and uphold the principles and code of ethics of the payroll profession.


Our Objectives

The objectives of the Southeast Louisiana Chapter are to keep payroll professionals informed of the impact of changes in tax laws (federal, state and local), to provide the opportunity to network with other payroll professionals, and interchange experiences, ideas and interests by finding answers to difficult questions and problems encountered by payroll professionals.

The Southeast Louisiana Chapter accomplishes its objectives by sponsoring:

  • Dinner seminars on the latest payroll topics by guest speakers from Federal and State agencies, attorneys, accountants and others knowledgeable in payroll compliance matters.
  • Annual Workshops on legislation affecting year-end issues and changes for the upcoming year.
