Statewide Conference
"Make Your Payroll Rise and Shine" - the 27th Annual Michigan Statewide Payroll Conference was held at the FireKeepers Casino in Battle Creek on October 20-21, 2016.  

Thanks to all the hardworking committee members, speakers, sponsors, and attendees for making it a huge success!  We had another sold-out year and the feedback has been excellent.  Hope to see you in 2017!

College and University Payroll Professionals got together for a roundtable meeting on Wednesday afternoon.

Thanks to Post for bringing us Sugar Bear and also a huge box of Post cereal for every attendee!

These are just a few of the photos taken by attendees and our photographers.
