What members get out of SCAS depends largely on what they put into it.  Many membership requirements are designed to help members more fully participate in and enjoy their Sister Cities experience: teambuilding, fundraising, public speaking, planning, organization, and communication are just some of the leadership skills that club members can exercise and enhance.

Being an SCAS leader provides further experience in motivating, inspiring, and guiding others.

As a service organization, SCAS members count on one another to contribute their time to monthly meetings, committee work, and special events.  What leads to our success and growth necessitates our members frequent attendance and participation.  

Our members share a key mission: to serve as Citizen Diplomats in our community and with our global partners in our Friendship and Sister Cities.   As a member, please give of your time and talents: in community work, in social functions, in all our programs and activities. Each member is asked to serve on at least one committee.  There are many opportunities for our members to get involved.

  • Yearly Dues at several different levels
