CLUBS AVAILABLE FOR SISTER CLUB RELATIONSHIP
Having sister club arrangements is within one of the scope of International Service where such initiatives can create better understanding and goodwill through joint activities and community projects.
Clubs need to know their objectives for sister club agreement to avoid possible misunderstanding later.
Clubs intending to have a sister club should send their club profile to each other so that an assessment of the suitability of the clubs can be done
If the initial assessment indicates a possible matched, the next logical step is to make an effort to arrange for a face-to-face meeting.
After the meeting, each club should be able to have a feel if it is worth pursuing the sister club agreement.
Unless the intended matched clubs already have established prior engagements, it is advised that a joint project should be taken up so that members from the respective Rotary clubs can get know each other before proceeding with any proposal for a sister club agreement.
Matched sister clubs must also be willing to reciprocate project funding such that funding for a joint project is not only (or always) provided by one club while the other club is only (or always) on the receiving end.
