Congressional Visits Day 2007

The 12th Annual SET Congressional Visits Day
On 1-2 May, U.S. IEEE members joined with like-minded members of the science, engineering and technology (SET) community in visits to congressional offices at the nation's Capitol complex in Washington, D.C.

Participants in the two-day event were there to remind lawmakers on that balanced federal investment in science, engineering and technology is fundamental to the future of our nation's prosperity; and effective competitiveness and innovation policies will sustain U.S. technological leadership and encourage the development of a skilled, creative and competitive workforce.

IEEE members visited the offices of members of Congress, where they met with key staff to discuss the importance of balanced and sustained federal investment.
