ROTARY FRIENDSHIP EXCHANGE (RFE) is an opportunity to participate in a cultural exchange in another Partner District selected by the D5580 Friendship Exchange Committee.  The exchange can be in another country or within the US.  
On the left side of this page, you will find a BROCHURE prepared by Rotary International that gives a general overview of this program, as well as a document prepared by the D5580 Friendship Exchange Committee that sets forth the CRITERIA for selection of an outbound RFE Team.  It is suggested that you review both documents, and specifically the CRITERIA, if you are interested in applying to participate on an outbound Team.
You might like to view the POWER POINT PRESENTATION from District 6200 (LOUISIANA) which will be the site of our Exchange in the 2016-2017 Rotary Year.  Additionally, the POWER POINT PRESENTATION that was given at the District Conference in Duluth is also available for viewing and/or download.  This provides excellent information on our District's previous RFE with a Partnering District in Australia, as well as future exchanges being considered by the RFE Committee.
