Michael Berkowtiz announces the next round of member cities in a post on the 100 Resilient Cities website: "the second group of cities selected to join 100 Resilient Cities – cities who have demonstrated a commitment to building their own capacities to navigate the shocks and stresses of an increasingly complex 21st Century."

"Each city was asked to present a clear and compelling description of their major resilience challenges, how they are approaching and planning for resilience to decrease vulnerabilities, and how they plan to partner with us."

U.S. cities on the list: Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, and Tulsa. Montreal is the new Canadian member.
