Geoscience Congressional Visits Day 2008

All geoscientists are invited to participate in Geoscience Congressional Visits Day (GCVD) 2008! Join fellow geoscientists during this two day event in Washington, DC 9-10 September.

Day one includes a briefing on how to speak with your legislative members, an overview of the Federal budget and the appropriations process, and a reception on Capitol Hill. On the second day you will meet with your Senators and Congressional Representative to discuss science research and development funding.

These visits show the importance of supporting Federally funded research through agencies such as NSF, NOAA, NASA, USGS, and DOE. GWG encourages all society members to join us at GCVD whether you have participated before or not.

Interested in joining us in September? Or perhaps you would simply like more information? Contact us at GeopolicyWorkingGroup@gmail.com or contact the public affairs staff at your member society from the list posted on this site.
