Welcome to BERA ~ Brookhaven Employees' Recreation Association
BNL Facilities are not open to the Public!
BERA is administered by the Quality of Life/BERA/Recreation Office, located in Bldg. 400. BERA oversees the many clubs and organizations, and assists in the administration of the overall program and the use of available recreational facilities on-site. See a complete list of BERA Clubs.
BERA members are employees and retirees of BNL or the Brookhaven Area Office of the U.S. Department of Energy, and members of their immediate families. “Immediate Family” is defined as spouse, children over 18 only, and parents. Contractors are not permitted to bring guests. (contractors include NOAA, TFCU, Cafeteria, etc.) You are a BERA member when you receive your photo ID badge and life number.
