Celebrating the success of our
Accounts Payable Community at
the APA Annual Conference and Gala Dinner

Each year we celebrate the success of individuals & teams by hosting the Industry’s Prestigious APA awards ceremony.

The awards provide a unique opportunity for the AP Industry to publicly recognise the hard-working professionals who have made an impact on their organisation, the sector or those who achieved personal success over the past 12 months

This year we are proud to announce a further two categories, which highlight our 'unsung heroes' who have personally mentored their colleagues, or the solution partners who have helped facilitate the success of our
Accounts Payable departments.

The process for nomination is simple. Complete the online form with a brief outline of why the individual/organisation deserves the award & we will be in touch.

Remember it’s not always the hugely successful projects, but the small acheivements which can make a real difference!
