Most of the idea between having "sister somethings" is pretty much
just about being friendly and sharing ideas. There's nothing special
beyond that, really. It's your local contact for a fairly different
area in contrast to our own, where we can share and draw brand new
ideas from, and an established starting point for when we want to
learn about the place. Having sister chapters for neighbouring/similar
countries probably won't have much of an impact on how parts of our
chapter could grow.
