Dual Memberships

It could be quite simple:

Dual Membership

Two NPCs - not allowed
An NPC and an NPHC - not allowed
A local and an NPC - allowed but you may have to drop your membership with the local, ask about it
A service sorority or fraternity and an NPC - allowed

etc., etc.

When someone asks again, they can just be directed to the sticky. End of discussion.

Just a thought.
By popular demand. Allowed/Not Allowed conditions can be posted here and used for future reference.

Actually when I said non-NPC it was inclusive of all other kinds of GLOs. And since I don't know the rules of the other D4 regarding it, I said may be allowed.

In this case, I think we should distinguish between service GLOs and general/social ones.

For example, I know NPHC orgs don't prohibit GSS or APO membership, but (at least my interpretation of my org's rules) is that you can't join if you were in ANY fraternity that was social/general.

No pledging a latino frat then changing your mind..... no founding a local and then switching teams.

How about professional, cultural (other than NPHC), or religious based fraternities and sororities?

I'm glad this sticky got posted, because I've been wanting to ask, purely out of curiosity, about (social) locals + NPHC but didn't want to post another annoying thread like the 5 million that get posted a day. I guess Senruset answered sufficiently, unless it is different for NPHC sororities?

May not be allowed (or at least VERY taboo), but it has been done, more times than you would expect....

I have the challenge that call on the issue of local orgs. I don't think that founding or being a member of a local GLO inherently bars you from membership in a more established national social org.

I would think depending on the degree the local was a full-fledged (locally) well-known established fraternity as opposed to it being an unorganized or unincorporated Greek letter club, whether or not your affiliation or association with such an org would disqualify you as a member of an NIC/NPC/NPHC organization would have to be on a case-by-case basis.

While I understand by general principle that such affiliation would disqualify you from joining a larger org, due to the lesser-known and less established nature of such orgs, I wouldn't be so quick to say that such affiliation will shut you out of another org, especially if the likelihood of its existence and being "found out about" falls under the radar.

Let's see. There is only one service fraternity- APO and two service sororities- GSS and OPA.

APO places no restriction on members joining other organizations or being a member of other orgs (we have long been proud of our members being members of other groups).

I am not aware of either GSS or OPA placing restrictions on their members joining (or being a member) of other organizations. While I wouldn't see a problem with something being in APO & GSS or APO & OPA, some might have an issue with being in GSS & OPA, but am unaware of any such rule. Those who are part of GSS & OPA should be able to add to this.

I am a member of OPA and we place no restrictions on members being a part of any other organization. I agree with APO, we are proud of members who are part of other groups. It helps diversify our group and gives us connections with other groups on campus.

There's actually a third service sorority....Epsilon Sigma Alpha, which have both collegiate chapters and non-collegiate chapters.

There is also Beta Sigma Phi which also has college and non-collegiate chapters. I am both Beta Sigma Phi and Kappa Alpha Theta.
