President's Report


My name is Teresa Kramer and I am the current president of the Miami Valley Chapter of the American Payroll Association.  Thank you for taking time to check out our website. 

I have had the pleasure of being part of this group for over ten years now.  I have seen a lot of changes in our profession and those changes never seem to stop coming.  Being a member of the MVAPA has been a great resource for me personally and professionally.  I started working with payroll many years ago in a small medical office.  I thought I had a good understanding of the payroll profession until I started at my current employer.  Everything is processed in-house and I started as a payroll clerk.  I had to learn everything from the ground up.  I eventually became a payroll specialist, payroll supervisor and currently payroll manager.   I earned my FPC (fundamental payroll certification) in 2006 and my CPP (certified payroll professional) certification in 2013.  The MVAPA was an invaluable resource in obtaining these certifications.  The networking, classes and meetings are a great way to gain the knowledge needed to obtain the certifications and to stay informed of all the changes that come our way.  I have formed relationships with many of the wonderful members of the MVAPA.  This networking is a tremendous resource for information and best practices. 

I hope you will make the time to join us for one of our monthly meetings.  We meet at Hospice of Dayton and we alternate between breakfast and lunch meetings.  We have knowledgable speakers on a variety of topics pertaining to the payroll profession.  RCH points are available for the meetings.   Our meeting information is available on this website. 


Hope to see you soon,

Teresa Kramer, CPP


Miami Valley Chapter for the American Payroll Association
