Congressional Visits Days

AGU co-sponsors four annual Congressional Visits Days (CVD), providing an opportunity for our members to meet with their legislators in Washington, DC, or at home. During the visits, participants discuss the importance of federally funded science research as well as their own research. Contact AGU staff if you are interested in any of these events.


District Visits – August 2018

You can also show your legislators the value of your science during congressional recesses in your district. AGU hosts a summer webinar to help our members prepare for local district visits.
