3rd Annual Virginia LERA Chapter Annual Conference

Please join the Virginia LERA Chapter and colleagues from across the Commonwealth at our 2nd Annual Conference on September 10 in Richmond. As public sector collective bargaining continues to expand across Virginia and private sector union organizing remains robust, we have a diverse group of expert panelists assembled to present on topics directly relevant to public and private sector employers, unions and related stakeholders. Register before August 20th for Early Bird pricing. A draft agenda is being formulated below. Virginia LERA members enjoy discounted registration. If you have any questions or issues with registration, please contact us. We hope to see you there!
