November 4, 2015. Aurora Sister Cities International (ASCI) Executive Director Karlyn Shorb and ASCI board member Tina Ye attended the U.S.-China Sister Cities Conference, which took place in Chicago during October 22-23. The conference offered ample opportunities for valuable networking, which Shorb and Ye took advantage of by connecting with Mr. Xie Yuan, Vice President, Chinese People’s Association for Friendship with Foreign Countries.
Such experiences are enormously beneficial for the future goals of Aurora Sister Cities International, which is in the process of exploring potentially establishing a sister city relationship with a Chinese municipality. Tina Ye is leading this effort.
