Persons interested in proposing a Sister City for Sarasota should work with a designated Sister Cities Association of Sarasota Board member to develop a well-researched proposal to present to the SCAS Board.
The proposal should include an evaluation of the candidate city using SCAS’s Criteria Form, including supporting information and contact persons in the candidate city, and evidence of sponsorship in the Sarasota community from established interest organizations or sustaining groups.
Any additional information that would be helpful to the Board’s consideration of the proposed relationship, and its recommendation to the City.
NOTE: many kinds of international exchanges can be initiated and carried out independently of Sister Cities. The purpose of creating an official Sister City relationship is to enable diverse projects within the context of a sustainable long-term relationship.
