ABSTRACT
The state of the membership is, broadly conceived, the major business of the American Sociological Society's Secretary. So far as numbers are concerned, there was some increase over last year. This is not a very satisfactory showing, in part because of an experiment in Membership Committee structure which was not adequately implemented, in part because major attention was focused on the development of the Society, the search for a formula for the reintegration into the Society of fragmented groups now quite distinct, and the formulation of an organized and continuing approach to sociologists and persons interested in sociology preparatory to a systematic membership campaign during 1950 when the organizational structure and office facilities would be more adequate. There are problems other than numbers about the membership, though. The major one is that nothing is known about who the members are, considered as a collectivity. The majority of the present members were blanketed in as active members when the classification system was initiated.
