2018 Michigan Statewide Payroll Conference - About Us

The first Michigan Statewide Payroll Conference was born in 1989 in the city of Lansing, MI about 65 attendees.  The location has bounced all over the state in such places as Detroit, Ann Arbor, Pontiac, Lansing, Grand Rapids, Kalamazoo, Mount Pleasant and more.  

The Michigan Payroll Conference is a joint effort between the Detroit, the West Michigan and Great Lakes Bay Chapters.  This annual conference switches from the east side of the state to the west side of the state and the Detroit and West Michigan Chapters take turns chairing the event.  The fairly new Michigan Chapter, the Great Lakes Bay Chapter, have joined us and are learning the ropes.  We will be looking forward to having the conference hosted in their neck of the woods some day.

The Conference offers a great opportunity for networking with other conference attendees and our wonderful group of exhibitors and sponsors. We will have dynamic presentations from payroll professionals, law firms, CPA firms, and government agencies. All speakers are well regarded in their fields and are selected to speak based upon their particular areas of expertise. Each session is created to provide the utmost benefit to the Conference attendees, allowing them the opportunity to learn as well as participate in the discussion.

The Michigan Payroll Conference has no paid employees or officers. The individuals responsible for organizing the conference are professionals involved in payroll who donate their time to plan and carry out the mission of the Conference which is to educate the payroll professional while providing an entertaining and educational learning experience.

Feel free to visit the websites of each Chapter to find out more about them!
