Benefits of Membership

As the complexities of payroll administration become more recognized and demanding, it becomes even more important to stay informed of the many issues constantly affecting our profession.

The benefits of joining the West MI Chapter include:

  • A reliable, convenient and accurate source of information as it related to our industry
  • Informative and timely topics presented by knowledgeable speakers
  • Annual CPP/FPP Review Study Group
  • Network opportunities with fellow payroll professionals

Membership Dues

There shall be two types of membership available:

  1. Personal Membership - An individual person who pays their annual membership fee personally: not from employer funds.
  2. Corporate Membership - An individual person or group of people who work for the same organization that have their annual membership fee paid by their employer.

An annual dues structure has been established by the Executive Board for the initiation of the Chapter.

  • Personal: $30.00
  • Corporate: $50.00

If a member joins after July 1, they will be charged half the annual dues , but may not be able to participate as a member for certain member discounted prices, including the discounted statewide conference. The member could reserve the right to pay the full annual fee for the remaining portion of the year to take full advantage.

Membership shall remain in effect for the calendar year.

*You will receive confirmation of your membership status upon payment.
