    President's Report

     Who would have thought we would be here today? As we settle into our "new normal" there are bound to be ups and downs along the way. VSPC would like to help you with some of the ups. Take a quick break and check out our trivia challenge for a chance to win fun prizes! We will also be hosting a virtual happy hour on Thursday, May 7th at 7pm. No set agenda, just an opportunity to gather with your payroll friends and blow off some steam. Information on our fun & games can be found front and center on our website at www.vspc-apa.com.

    The VSPC board remains optimistic we will still be able to greet your smiling faces as planned this October. Planning for the 2020 conference continues along. The Speaker committee has one final session to finalize, so keep your eyes peeled for the updated agenda & session information soon. Our website will continue to be updated with news as updates occur, so be sure to check back often!

    Did You Know.....

      We all know that in the Roaring Twenties, a surging economy created an era of mass consumerism, as Jazz-Age flappers flouted Prohibition laws and the Harlem Renaissance redefined arts and culture.

    The Virginia Statewide Payroll Conference Trivia game is starting the week of April 20! The VSPC committee feels like we all need a little fun in our lives during this trying time. Let’s see what we all know about the Roaring Twenties.

    The rules are simple...

    Trivia questions will be sent out each week via email and they will be posted on the website as well. Answer the questions, they are all multiple choice. The more questions you answer, the better chance you have to WIN!!!! You will have two weeks to answer each question.

    Prizes... of course we have them. PRIZE 1 - the person who answers the most trivia questions, if there is a tie, it will be a drawing amongst that group of people. PRIZE 2 - the person who answers the most questions correctly, if there is a tie, it will be a drawing amongst the group of people.
