The Science, Engineering and Technology
Congressional Visits Day (SET CVD) is an annual two-day 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 SET CVD is coordinated by a coalition of companies, professional societies
and educational institutions and it is open to all who support
science and technology. The
two-day program consists of a series of briefings and meetings,
with a full day of visits to your Congressional delegates.

awareness of the long-term
importance of science, engineering and technology to the nation through face-to-face meetings with
