This year’s LERA Annual Meeting has the highest attendance in its history so we hope that you’ll be able to connect with some old colleagues and meet some new ones.

Stop by the ILR table and say hello to Chrissi and Melanie if you get a chance.  They’d love to see you and hear about how things are going.

Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter @TheScheinman, @WorkerInstitute, @CornellILR and @ILR_alumni and join the conversation at #LERA2015.

Have fun!
