I was under the impresion that GPhiD was social. Hence my question. As it is business, my question is answered. Thanks.

With Professional fraternities, you can not join two of the same type, but can join more then one, so long as they are different.

ie, you could join a business and a law fraternity (my dad did), but you couldn't join 2 law fraternities.

How about the combination of cultural Greek + NIC/NPC?

I know a girl who claims to be a member of a multicultural Greek and an NPC, though I am pretty sure that the multicultural is just colonizing at her school. Or she could just be shitting me because she's too afraid to ask outright whether it's allowed or not.

She's probably lying.

Who has time to do both?

It isn't an issue of time. The issue is whether or not dual membership is permitted on the part of the NPC and MCGLO.

Hence, the "she's probably lying," since a lot of LGLO/MCGLOs don't allow dual memberships.

The time commitment part was in reference to the second part of her post.

Okay.

Time commitment still doesn't have anything to do with what she posted. People make time for all sorts of things if they are allowed to do so.

What happens if your chapter gets shut down at the school you are initiated at? Do the rules still apply?

Yes, the rules apply whether your chapter shuts down, you transfer to another school and they don't have your sorority, you are shot to the moon or you forget that you got initiated. It doesn't matter. Once you get initiated, you can't join another group.

And I can't believe I reread the whole thing and still didn't get an answer to a question I had (even though I was re-entertained)

As I do not wish to reread the whole thread, what was it?

I have a question: I'm a part of a National group, but we are not NPC, nor are we NPHC, or service oriented. We are not off campus either. I have been in my group for one year and although we are on our way to becoming NPC, it will not be when I am an undergrad. Now when I say on our way I don't mean that we're waiting for the decision and I'm just being impatient. I mean that we are beginning to accumulate the right number of quality chapters and other criteria.
I'm going to go to grad school and I'm wondering if I should attempt to join an NPC sorority when it it is possible that my group could become NPC?

You mean that you are part of an org that wants to eventually expand and JOIN the NPC? Understand that new orgs haven't been added to the conference since 1951. Not saying that it would NEVER happen, but it's not an overnight (or even a "few years") thing.

Also, just a note, not every NPC member org allows grad students to join. Even if a particular org does allow grad students, it doesn't mean that a CHAPTER traditionally does. Ex: XYZ might allow grad students according to its bylaws, but the chapter at Traditional Greek System University may have never actually bid a grad student (because all NMs at that school are typically traditional students.)

Grad school issue aside, if you did join an NPC sorority and your current sorority eventually became the 27th NPC group, you most likely would have to surrender your membership in your current sorority, as the group who's been an NPC member the longest would take precedence. This is what happened when the newest members of NPC joined in 1951. Does that help?
