Geoscience Congressional Visit Days
The American Geosciences Institute (AGI), in collaboration with many other geoscience societies, invites geoscientists to participate in the annual Geoscience Congressional Visits Days (GEO-CVD) on September 15 - 16, 2020. By uniting geoscience researchers, professionals, students, educators, engineers, and executives in Washington D.C., GEO-CVD increases the visibility of and support for the geosciences in Congress. Participants in GEO-CVD have an opportunity to meet with members of their state’s congressional delegation and staff from congressional committees that have jurisdiction over geoscience issues! For 2020, GeoCVD will be a virtual event for previous participants.
