Global Connections Thrive in Fort Worth

Fort Worth, Texas Fort Worth Sister Cities International Kicks Off 2017 Members Circle Campaign 

Led by Bob Jameson, 2017 Campaign Chair and President of the Fort Worth Convention and Visitors Bureau, the 2017 Members Circle is a thriving network of individuals, organizations, corporations and community leaders committed to expanding global relationships for peace and prosperity at home and abroad. Lead donors to this year’s campaign will be recognized at the Mayor’s International Dinner at the Omni Hotel on June 1.

Due to the generosity of corporate and individual donors, Sister Cities is starting the year with $180,925 in Members Circle commitments and is on its way to meeting a $400,000 goal.  This early support comes from Sundance Square, as the Platinum member; the Fort Worth Convention & Visitors Bureau, Rae & Michael Hyatt, and Texas Health Resources as Premier members; Bennett Benner Partners, and Linebarger Goggan Blair & Simpson, LLP as Global members; Alcon, Cook Children’s, The Law Office of Greg Jackson, Mary Palko and Tarrant County College as Presidential members; as well as 100% of the Sister Cities’ board of directors and many others.

After a very successful 2016, Fort Worth Sister Cities continues to promote Fort Worth globally and enrich the local community through international education, exchange and commerce.  “We had a warm welcome from the community last year and loved sharing our story with a record number of people,” said Johnny Campbell, Board Chairman. “Our business is people-to-people relationships.  We do it well and want to do even more to benefit Fort Worth.”

Funding and in-kind support from the City of Fort Worth (4% of Sister Cities’ total budget) plays a key role in Sister Cities’ mission, but most work is made possible through public support like that received through the Members Circle.
