Geosciences Congressional Visits Day (GEO-CVD)


Event Details


Share Your Science with Policy Makers in D.C.

AGU, in collaboration with other geoscience societies, invites geoscientists to come to Washington, D.C., for the annual Geosciences Congressional Visits Day (Geo-CVD) on 10-11 September 2019. Decision makers need to hear from geoscientists to know the value of Earth and space science for their districts and states. Join your colleagues for this two-day event uniting geoscience researchers, professionals, students, educators, engineers, and executives in Washington, D.C., to raise visibility and support for the geosciences.

The goal of Geo-CVD is to help build relationships between Earth and space scientists and policy makers. Over time, these relationships grow, and you can become a “go-to” expert when a congressional office needs critical geoscience information.

Financial support is available for students, community college faculty, and underrepresented candidates.

The deadline to apply is Wednesday, 24 July 2019.
