The Labor and Employment Relations Association has more than 50 local Chapters where members meet colleagues in the private, public and federal sectors, as well as faculty from local universities and third-party neutrals. Local Chapter members value the opportunity to learn about matters of importance in their area and to exchange off-the-record observations with chapter speakers and members. The structure and meeting schedules of individual Chapters vary. Membership ranges from 30 to 400 members; dues vary from $10 to $50, and the number of meetings range from twice a year to the more usual monthly gatherings. Chapters frequently join with other organizations and agencies in sponsoring major conferences and workshops. Contact the LERA Office for more information, (217) 333-0072, or by email at
