The sister city program was created under President Eisenhower in 1956. Eisenhower envisioned an organization that could be the hub of peace and prosperity by creating bonds between people from different cities around the world.
A sister city is established when top elected officials sign a formal agreement of the two jurisdictions, i.e. two cities of two different nations. Please click on “History” to find out how Lynchburg got connected to our two sister cities.
We are a volunteer, non-profit, 501c (3), organization and a member of Sister Cities International, Washington, DC.
We are governed by a Board of Directors which is elected to three-year terms by its membership. The board in turn elects its officers for one-year term.
Please visit our website often, check out its entire links and please consider for you and your family and/or your company to become member to our great organization.
