American representatives of Sister Cities International visited Gibraltar on Thursday the 19th of April for the first time in the association's 62 years history this week, in a bid to foster relationship between the countries.
The event hosted yesterday by the Gibraltar American Chamber of Commerce saw the representative's on a fact finding mission. Forging links between the University of Gibraltar and it's American counterparts were of particular interest and Jane Cahaly from Sister Cities noted, "I'm very excited at trying to get the University of Gibraltar to form links between universities in the US. I work in a consortium of 44 universities in the US and we do International programming so getting to know the folks here in Gibraltar is extremely valuable". Ms Cahaly is currently the Senior consultant for International Programmes with the consortium for Global Education that sees thousands of students participate in overseas study.

AmCham Gibraltar hosted an educational roundtable on the topic of Philanthropy, with Randi Weaver of Good Giving Consulting, on the 4th of May at the Wessex Lounge.
Randi led a thought-provoking session about the essentials of Philanthropy: why people give and how donors, be they individuals, families or companies, can feel more satisfied about their charitable giving. The event was well-supported by AmCham Gibraltar members, including marketing managers and people focusing on Corporate Social Responsibility.
