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.
Balanced federal investment in science, engineering, and technology (SET)
is fundamental to the future of our Nation's prosperity.
S&T partnerships between government, universities, and industries mean
progress, economic growth and jobs.
. . . members of the Coalition for Technology Partnerships and the Science-Engineering-Technology
Work Group and other colleagues in the science and technology enterprise.
- The Coalition for Technology Partnerships is
a group of small, medium, and large businesses, and trade associations. These

development mechanisms. Contact: Kathleen N. Kingscott (202-515-5193, Fax
