Members of the American Payroll Association are working to establish a chapter in Reno.
Current members of the payroll association as well as payroll, human resource, benefits and finance professionals will meet April 4 to discuss plans for the new chapter.
Nationwide, the American Payroll Association has 115 local chapters. The group's work includes education, recognition of payroll as a professional discipline, and representation of the industry to federal agencies.
The proposed Reno chapter would offer speakers, a newsletter, a Web site and involvement in national events such as "National Payroll Week" contests.
For information about the chapter and the organizational meeting, contact Rick Schraub at Intuit Payroll Services, (775) 424-8482.
