IEEE-USA is thrilled to announce the much-anticipated 2024 Congressional Visits Day (CVD), scheduled to take place on April 10-11, 2024. This annual event, a cornerstone in the technology and engineering community, serves as a platform to elevate the voices of engineers, scientists, mathematicians, researchers, educators, and technology executives in Washington, D.C.

CVD plays a vital role in driving dialogue and advocating for issues pertinent to IEEE members in the United States. It’s a unique opportunity for participants to engage directly with elected officials, fostering discussions on legislation and policies that shape the technology landscape.

Objective and Agenda:

The primary objective of CVD is to introduce participants, representing a diverse spectrum of expertise and industries, to elected officials. The event begins on April 10th with an immersive training session and policy briefing conducted by IEEE-USA’s government relations professionals. Participants will then convene on Capitol Hill on April 11th, engaging in meaningful discussions with legislators and/or their staff, focusing on pertinent technology policy matters in Congress.

CVD Training:

Recognizing the importance of accessibility, IEEE-USA is offering virtual training sessions alongside the in-person training. These sessions will be livestreamed and available for on-demand viewing, ensuring all participants have the opportunity to benefit from the valuable insights shared.
Russ Harrison, Managing Director of IEEE-USA, expressed his enthusiasm for the event, stating, “CVD stands as a pinnacle event for our community, enabling us to directly advocate for issues crucial to the advancement of technology and engineering. It’s a platform where we unite, amplify our voices, and contribute to shaping policies that drive innovation and progress.”


IEEE-USA serves the public good and promotes the careers and public policy interests of over 150,000 engineering, computing and technology professionals who are U.S. members of IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional organization.
