What is Congressional Visits Day (CVD)?

The CVD is a two-day annual event that brings scientists, engineers, researchers, educators, and technology executives to Washington to raise visibility and support for science, engineering, and technology. Uniquely multi-sector and multi-disciplinary, the CVD is coordinated by coalitions of companies, professional societies and educational institutions and it is open to all people who believe that science and technology comprise the cornerstone of our Nation's future.


. . to underscore the long-term importance of science and technology to the Nation through meetings with congressional decisionmakers.

Core Messages


. . . members of the Coalition for Technology Partnerships and the Science-Engineering-Technology Work Group and other colleagues in the science and technology enterprise.
