Geoscience Congressional Visits Day (Geo-CVD)

If you care about how our nation’s laws affect the scientific community and want to get involved with science and politics at the national level, here is your opportunity to make a difference. Participate in Geoscience Congressional Visits Day (Geo-CVD) on 16-17 September in Washington, DC. This is a great opportunity for you to come to our nation’s capital and promote science.CVD 2013 - Karen Paczkowski, Brandon Honore (Rep. DeLauro), Suzanne OConnell

AGU partners with other scientific societies to host Geo-CVD. If you participate in a CVD, AGU will schedule meetings for you with members of Congress and their staff so that you can discuss your research and illustrate the importance of supporting federally funded research through agencies such as DOE, EPA, NASA, NOAA, NSF, and USGS. Facing a difficult budget environment, it is vital for the scientific community to stay involved in these discussions.

We strongly encourage you to participate in Geo-CVD whether or not you have participated in congressional activities before. It’s a perfect opportunity to promote Earth and space science. Sign up for this year’s Geo-CVD below!
