Welcome to the Sister Cities International of Fresno's website. As a not-for-profit 501 (C) (3) organization, the Fresno Board of Directors oversees and supports the activities of Fresno's Sister City Committees: Etchmiadzin, Armenia; Taishan, China; Kochi, Japan; Muenster, Germany; Verona, Italy; and Torreon, Mexico.
Fresno's Mayor, Ashley Swearengin, is Chairman of the Board, which consists of executive officers and the chairpersons of each sister city committee. The Board meets regularly to strengthen its relationship with each of the committees.
Sister Cities International, based in Washington, D.C., assists in the development of partnerships between cities in the United States and cities around the world. Their mission is to promote cultural, business, and student exchange programs between sister cities.
We encourage you to browse through the websites, and if you are interested in participating, consider joining one of the sister city committees.
