Concord Ambassadors

The Concord Ambassadors was founded in October of 1974 as a result of two cable TV executives meeting at a conference and becoming friends. Court Kirkeeng of Concord and Dr. Zenji Katagata of Kitakami persuaded their city leaders to approve the Sister City relationship and enlisted the help of other citizens to make the partnership work.

In October 2024, the Concord Ambassadors will welcome a Japanese delegation to celebrate 50 years of friendship between Concord, California and its sister city, Kitakami, Japan.
