International Relations

Advisory Groups

Attend a meeting of the Charlotte International Cabinet or the Welcoming Charlotte Partnership. These groups help advise the City on international and immigrate affairs and their meetings are open to the public. You can also check with the City Clerk's Office to see if any Cabinet appointments are open. Members are appointed to serve three-year terms by the Mayor or City Council. A City Boards and Commissions application must be completed and filed with the City Clerk's Office to be considered for appointment. Next year the Cabinet  will launch a matching grant program to further encourage residents to engage with our Sister Cities.


Please note that we have no internships available at this time.
