Each December, Sister Cities members and citizens interested in the organization gather for the Annual Membership Meeting to elect Board Members, review the activities of the last year, and announce coming events and exchanges. Join them for this year’s Annual Membership Meeting on Tuesday, December 5 from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Stratford University  at 836 J Clyde Morris Boulevard.sister cities annual meeting 2

Hear reports from the youth exchange to Germany and the citizen delegation to China, learn of 2018 exchange opportunities, participate in a silent auction fundraiser, and enjoy hors d’oeuvres. The silent auction helps to raise funds for their two scholarship programs: the Travel Scholarship Program and the College Scholarship Award. Members in good standing will also elect the Board of Directors. 

The event is open to both members and nonmembers. Tickets can be purchased on Eventbrite at $15 for youth and $20 for adults. Interested in becoming a member or want to know more about the event? Visit the Sister Cities Newport News website.
