Buffalo Niagara Payroll Association

Welcome to the Buffalo Niagara Payroll Association Website

Chapter News

You shared, and we listened! 

Many of our members have indicated they would like the opportunity to participate in community support and volunteering.  We have partnered with several local non-profit organizations, which will give our chapter the opportunity to collect donation items, provide volunteer service and support our neighbors during the holiday season. 

Each event will indicate what organization we are supporting, and how you can help. 

Thank you for giving of your time, and your generous support.

About us

The Buffalo Niagara Payroll Association (BNPA) is a local chapter of the American Payroll Association.  We are comprised of individual members who represent many area employers in the Western New York area, including manufacturing firms, technical groups, public employers, educational institutions and retail companies.


Our mission is to be a reliable source of information on national, state and local payroll issues.  We encourage our members to continuously enhance their education and are in strong support of the Certified Payroll Professional (CPP) program, offering a local study group to help prepare for the exam.  The chapter also provides valuable networking opportunities for its members.


  • Enhance the quality of the payroll profession
  • Promote the exchange of payroll knowledge at a local level
  • Offer support in achieving the Certified Payroll Professional (CPP) Certificate and the Fundamental Payroll Certificate (FPC)
  • Promote and educate the community on the Payroll Profession and payroll issues

YOU are an important part of our chapter!  The success of the chapter depends on you and the rewards will help you meet the growing responsibilities to comply with new regulations.  It provides us with a united voice speaking out for the payroll profession.
