Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the Seattle-Isfahan Sister Cities Association (SISCA). “Membership” will be open to all and not limited to Seattle residents.
We are still in the early stages in our efforts as our next step is to seek approval for a formal sister city relationship by both the City of Seattle and the municipal government of Isfahan. That being said, you are not alone in your interest in seeing Seattle and Isfahan becoming sister cities, as citizens from all over the world have reached out to express and offer their support.
If you would like to help make our citizen initiative a reality, we asking potential members to take a few minutes to fill out the Seattle-Isfahan Sister Cities Association membership application below.
In addition, we ask for new members to mail a check for $5 (or a $5 bill) which covers yearly membership dues (less than a couple of lattes!) to the address below. Please make checks payable to: Seattle-Isfahan Sister Cities Association or SISCA.
