Scientists and graduate students who are interested in communicating the
importance of federal investments in scientific research and education to
lawmakers are invited to participate in the Biological and Ecological
Sciences Coalition (BESC) Congressional Visits Day in Washington, DC.

This event is an opportunity for scientists to meet with their members of
Congress to discuss the importance of federal funding for biological
research and education. Event participants advocate for federal investments
in biological sciences research, with a primary focus on the National
Science Foundation, as well as other federal agencies.

BESC is co-chaired by the American Institute of Biological Sciences and the
Ecological Society of America.

This year's event will be held in late spring 2015 in Washington, DC. The
first day of the program is a training program that will prepare
participants for meetings with congressional offices. The second day is
spent on Capitol Hill meeting with members of Congress and their staff.

There is no cost to participate in this event, but space is limited. BESC
and its member organizations are not able to pay/reimburse participants for
their travel expenses.

Learn more about the event and express your interest in participating at
http://www.aibs.org/public-policy/congressionalvisitsday.html. The deadline
to sign up is 13 March 2015.
