The Virginia LERA Chapter is forming! VA LERA plans to offer virtual events throughout the remainder of the COVID-19 pandemic, and then meetings in person in the future. These gatherings will provide a stimulating forum for speakers from all parts of the employment relations and industrial relations arenas including management, labor, government, attorneys, and academicians. Representatives from management, labor, government, attorneys, and academicians bring a variety of perspectives to the group, encouraging lively discussion of current events in employee and industrial relations. The chapter publishes a membership directory, cosponsors workshops, and seminars, and will consider conducting an annual year-end social event. If you are interested in a leadership role, please contact us!
