2022 Biological Sciences Congressional District Visits
The Botanical Society of America is pleased to announce that we are once again joining with the American Institute of Biological Sciences to sponsor the 13th annual Biological Sciences Congressional District Visits event.
This national initiative is an opportunity for scientists across the country to meet with their federal or state elected officials to showcase the people, facilities, and equipment that are required to support and conduct scientific research.
The Biological Sciences Congressional District Visits event enables scientists, graduate students, representatives of research facilities, and people affiliated with scientific collections to meet with their federal or state elected officials without traveling to Washington, DC. Participating scientists can meet with their elected officials at the local district office, virtually, or may invite them to visit their research facility. Meetings will take place mid-July through October, depending on the participant’s schedule and their lawmaker’s availability.
BSA members who participate will receive one-on-one support and online training to prepare for their tour or meeting.
We encourage our members to participate in this important event. Participation is free for BSA members, but registration is required.
Registration will close on July 15, 2022. To register, visit io.aibs.org/cdv.
