AGU co-sponsors a handful of 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.
