LERA Lifetime Achievement Award

The LERA Lifetime Achievement Award is a capstone achievement for lifelong contributors to the field of Industrial Relations and Human Resources, from all perspectives. This award was established in 2000, and awardees are recognized at the LERA Annual Meeting, in conjunction with the Presidential Luncheon. This special award is appointed by the LERA President each year; we do not accept nominations.
