Plan to join members of AAPG and other geoscience organizations in Washington, D.C., Sept. 17-18, for Geoscience Congressional Visits Day.
Geo-CVD, similar to the AAPG CVD, is an opportunity for members to help raise visibility and support for the geosciences – and discuss with congressional offices the science behind the energy issues important to you and other AAPG members.
A constructive visit from citizen geoscientists centered on the importance of geoscience, and the science behind energy issues such as hydraulic fracturing is the most effective way to inform and influence federal policy.
Here’s how it works:
Fact sheets and talking points for shared geoscience concerns will be provided. Plan to bring examples from your experience and impacts to your congressional district.
All of the scheduling and logistics for the workshop and visits will be arranged by AAPG and its sister societies.
To participate, contact Edith Allison, AAPG’s GEO-DC director.
