Geo-CVD will be held in person September 2024.
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). 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!
