Bellingham Sister Cities Association is on a mission
The Bellingham Sister Cities Association is a community-based organization providing opportunities for local residents to develop relationships and build a sense of community with the people of the world. We seek to promote intercultural understandings, economic and tourism ties, and world peace. This is accomplished through cultural and athletic exchanges, educational programs, and community events.
The B.S.C.A. is directed by a Mayor’s Sister Cities Advisory Board. The board assists with visiting delegations, finding homestays, and organizing events throughout the year. You can learn more about applying to be on the Sister Cities Advisory Board by visiting the City of Bellingham’s Boards & Commissions web page.
The BSCA is a non-profit organization which is funded solely by membership dues, business and individual support.
