Overview 1982 to 1984: Membership


  • Anonymous


AGU's membership grew by 7% in 1982 and an additional 9.4% in 1983. This pheonomenal growth is due largely to the ever increasing numbers of students who are joining AGU and to the increase in non-U.S. membership that has been promoted over the past couple years and is continuing. Student membership was 13.1% of the total membership in 1983 and 15.1% in 1984. Non-U.S. membership, which was steady at 19–20% in the 1970s, had dropped to 18% in 1982 and is now back at 20%.
