Geosciences Congressional Visits Day Graduate Student Representative

The Rocky Mountain Section of GSA would like to support one of its graduate student members to participate in this fall's Geosciences Congressional Visits Day (GEO-CVD). This is an annual event sponsored by GSA in conjunction with other Earth science societies, to increase the visibility of and support for the geosciences in Congress. Participants in GEO-CVD have an opportunity to meet with members of their state’s congressional delegation and staff from congressional committees that have jurisdiction over geoscience issues. GSA makes it easy for you to go on a Congressional visit. GSA staff will create a schedule for you and arrange your training.
