In order to adhere to Alameda County guidelines for Social Distancing, we are cancelling LLRA luncheons for the foreseeable future.
We will inform you of changes in our event schedules as new guidelines are issued.  


The LLRA board wishes everyone good health and encourages all to follow the guidance and advice from official national and local authoritaties.   


We are not serving as a source of information but would like to let you know of and give you a quick link to helpful resources.

UC's Dr. Swarzberg Answers COVID-19 Questions.


The following update comes from Jeff Garberson- CUCRA Representative for LLRA:​


Fellow retirees:   We thought you might be interested in this interview with John Swartzberg, which was posted on the UC website for its presentation of reliable information about sanitation and cleanliness in the presence of the novel coronavirus.  Some of you will know Dr. Swarzberg as the senior physician in charge of the UC Berkeley Wellness Letter, which has provided sound health advice for years.

About LLRA

The Livermore Lab Retirees Association (LLRA) is an organization for retired employees and spouses of retirees of Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.  LLRA is open to retirees from Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, whether they are members of CalPERS, UCRS or the private retirement system of the LLC. 

We generally have monthly luncheon meetings January through May and July through November.   Due to COVID 19 local restrictions, luncheons were halted in April 2020.  A restart of the luncheons will be announced on these site pages. 


LLRA is a member of the The Council of University of California Retiree Associations (CUCRA), a consortium of the Retiree Associations of nine University of California campuses: Berkeley, Davis, Irvine, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Diego, San Francisco, Santa Barbara, and Santa Cruz; the three UC-managed National Laboratories: Lawrence Berkeley, Lawrence Livermore, and Los Alamos; and the Office of the President/Regents.
