Congressional Visits Day 2016

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 was held 15-16 March 2016. Check back in mid-December 2016 for details about CVD 2017.

Past CVD participants have written about their experience for the Policy Blog:
