Second Annual Geosciences Congressional Visits Days September 15 & 16, 2009
14 May 2009
The American Geological Institute will host the second annual Geosciences Congressional Visits Days (Geo-CVD) on the 15th and 16th of September 2009.
This two-day event brings geoscientists, engineers, researchers, educators, and executives to Washington D.C. to raise visibility and support for the geosciences. Participants will spend the first day learning about how Congress works, the current state of the budget process, and how to conduct congressional visits. The second day will consist of visits with members of Congress. In addition to the workshops and visits, participants will get to meet other geoscientists and federal science agency representatives.
Geo-CVD will be coordinated by Washington DC staff from the AGI, the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, the American Geophysical Union, the American Society of Limnology and Oceanography, the Geological Society of America, the Seismological Society of America, and the Soils Science Society of America. Please contact the AGI Government Affairs staff for more information and to volunteer to participate by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
