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, engineering, and
technology to the Nation through meetings with congressional decisionmakers.
. . . members of the Science-Engineering-Technology Work Group and other colleagues
in the science and technology enterprise.
- The Science-Engineering-Technology Work Group
is an information network comprising professional, scientific, and engineering
societies, higher education associations, institutions of higher learning,
and trade associations. The Work Group is concerned about the future vitality
of the U.S. science, mathematics, and engineering enterprise. Contacts: Debbie
