Join us for a Congressional Visits Day

Congressional Visits Day

Each year, AGU sponsors four Congressional Visits Days (CVDs), which brings our members to Washington, D.C. to meet with policymakers or provides the opportunity to meet at home in their Congressional districts. Attendees participate in a workshop with AGU staff, or a webinar for districts visits, before meeting with members of Congress or their staff to discuss the importance of federally funded scientific research.


If you are interested in learning about any of these events, contact us for more information or use our toolkit to learn about meeting with your member of Congress

  • AGU Congressional Visits Days bring together scientists and educators from across geosciences disciplines to share the wonder and value of Earth and space science with key legislators. 
  • Each year AGU co-sponsors a Climate Science Congressional Visits Day to connect legislators with climate experts from their districts, to ensure policymakers receive the best possible climate science information from trusted sources. Upcoming: 30-31 Jan 2019
  • With a district visit, you can also show your legislators the value of your science during congressional recesses when your policymakers are home in your district. AGU hosts a summer webinar to help you prepare for district visits.
  • Every year, AGU co-sponsors Geoscience Congressional Visits Day. Join AGU and other Earth and space science societies as we meet with congressional offices to share critical geoscience information. This event allows ESS scientists to build relationships with policymakers to advance science.
