CNSF Advocacy Meetings

Beginning each spring, and extending until final appropriations are set for the next fiscal year, individual CNSF members team up to target key Congressional appropriations offices to advocate for support for the National Science Foundation. During these meetings, the overall importance of science across all disciplines is emphasized, as is the research agency's support for all sciences and education.
