Kappa Kappa Psi and Tau Beta Sigma allow members of NPC/NIC/NPHC groups to joint. There have been many KDs from my chapter who belonged to one or the other of these 2 groups.

Found something interesting this morning in terms of mutual non-membership among Professional Fraternities.

At least as of 2001, Theta Tau Professional Engineering Fraternity had the following on its "Competitive List", which means that dual membership is not allowed:
Alpha Chi Sigma (chemistry)
Alpha Omega Epsilon (engineering sorority)
Alpha Rho Chi (architecture)
Kappa Eta Kappa (electrical engineering)
Phi Sigma Rho (engineering sorority)
Scarab (architecture)
Sigma Beta Epsilon (engineering sorority)
Sigma Phi Delta (general engineering)
Sigma Rho (mining, geology, metallurgy)
Triangle (general engineering, science, & architecture)

Sigma Alpha Iota has membership exclusivity policies with three other fraternities only: Delta Omicron, Mu Phi Epsilon, and Phi Beta. If you're a woman and a member of a sorority/fraternity other than one of those three, we welcome you with open arms. Our current National President is a sister of an NPC organization, as is at least one of our Regional Officers. One of the sisters in my collegiate chapter is also a Delta, as are some of the sisters from other chapters in our province/state. And, of course, I have sisters in SAI who are also sisters and brothers of Tau Beta Sigma and Kappa Kappa Psi.

I'd love to see the membership exclusivity diagram among the National Interfraternity Music Council...

As far as I can tell, its something like this:

TBS/KKPsi elaboration - If you were initiated into TBS and you transfer to a school that doesn't have TBS but does have KKPsi, you can't be an Active Member but you can be an Associate member. It also works if you were Active KKPsi and transfer to a school that only has TBS.

I know that Business Fraternities (for example Delta Sigma Pi) have many members who are also initiated into NIC/NPC chapters. Seems very common.

So to boil it down, you can be Initiated as a student into *one* of ΚΚΨ/ΤΒΣ and *one* of the other five (with a few special cases).
