Distinguised Club Criteria for Object 5

Sister Kiwanis clubs
Developing a sister/twin club relationship with another club will expand your circle of contacts, give club officers and members the chance to bounce ideas and approaches off each other in a less competitive environment. Perhaps a special meeting or video/Skype club get-together would make for an interesting program or even sharing of programs. From there, the Kiwanis International convention provides the ideal opportunity for that face-to-face meeting.

To find a sister/twin club, "Like" the Kiwanis International Facebook page and post about your interest in finding a like-minded club for idea-sharing and collaboration. Other clubs can then respond and the idea will spread.
