About the Committee

The Sister Cities Committee was established to advise the City in all matters relating to Pocatello's membership in Sister Cities International, including active cultivation of relationships, coordination of cultural, educational, economic, and other exchanges; and implementation of fundraising activities; and safekeeping of gifts.

Pocatello's sister cities are Iwamizawa, Hokkaido, Japan and Kwaremenguel, Burkina Faso, Africa. The City's volunteer Sister Cities Committee oversees the relationship with Iwamizawa. There are 15 members on this Committee who sever 4-year terms. Find more information about this Committee at the Pocatello/Iwamizawa Sister Cities page.

The private, non-profit Sister Cities Foundation of Pocatello, Inc. was authorized by the City to act as its representative in the relationship with Kwaremenguel.
