	At least for the last two decades, both the New York branch of the ULT
and the New York Theosophical Society have encouraged cross membership.
Getting cross-lecturers is a little more difficult; the ULT won't have
our lecturers, and they don't like to lecture at the NYTS under the
conditions we have of open questions and discussions.
