For a member driven association like AACRAO, we rely on demographics to figure out more about your roles and responsibilities in higher education, which in turn helps us figure out where we should be focusing our efforts to produce the most useful content.  The makeup of AACRAO's membership has changed remarkably in the 114 years of our Association. 

There were fewer than 25 members of AACRAO when we held our first annual meeting.  Today, AACRAO has expanded to include over 11,000 members from all 50 states and 40 countries!

In 1910, only 10 colleges in United States had more than 5,000 students.  Today, 777 member institutions have enrollments of at least 5,000 students; that's 29% of our member institutions.  Those 777 schools account for 48% of our individual members.

Prior to 1949 AACRAO was known as AACR.  In 1949, the name was expanded to include Admissions Officers to account for the increased importance of the admissions officer in recruiting, evaluating, and admitting students.  The highest percentage of our members work in Records and Registration at 58%, but right behind that is Admissions at 34%.
