Every year the AAS brings volunteers to Washington, DC, to advocate for federal support of science with their members of Congress during Congressional Visits Day (CVD). This is part of a coordinated effort to gather scientists, engineers, researchers, educators, and technology executives in the nation’s capital to raise visibility and support for science, engineering, and technology.
This year the AAS CVD will be held 15-16 March 2016. Sign-ups are closed for CVD 2016. Check back in mid-December 2016 for details about CVD 2017.
Note that you'll need to sign in to aas.org with your AAS username and password to submit the form.
