PAST PARIS – CHICAGO PROGRAMS

2011
December

Focus: Social Services
The City of Paris hosted the 2011 Paris/Chicago Social Services Exchange delegation December 5 -11.  The goal, as in the first conference held in Chicago in 2010, was to improve social services in both sister cities through dialogue about best practices.  Professional and personal relationships between Paris and Chicago were strengthened through the week’s interactions, most notably when the delegation was hosted in City Hall by Deputy Mayor Pierre Schapira, in Renee Johnson’s home and also in the home of Geneviève Gueydan.
