25 Jun 2010
The American Geological Institute (AGI), in collaboration with SSA and many other geoscience societies, invites geoscientists to come to Washington DC for the third annual Geosciences Congressional Visits Day (GEO-CVD) on September 21-22, 2010.
Decision makers need to hear from geoscientists. Become a citizen geoscientist and join many of your colleagues for this two-day event uniting geoscience researchers, professionals, students, educators, engineers, and executives in Washington DC to raise visibility and support for the geosciences.
This two-day event brings geoscientists, engineers, researchers, educators, and executives to Washington D.C. to raise visibility and support for the geosciences. Become a citizen geoscientist and join many of your colleagues for a workshop at AGU headquarters followed by a day conducting visits with Members of Congress or congressional staff on Capitol Hill.
The visits will focus on the importance of geoscience research and development and geoscience education. Geoscientists will speak for these shared concerns with a unified message and can enhance the message by using examples from their professional work and experiences.
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.
