At the end of the General Assembly in Montreal, the membership of Commission 41 comprised 79 full members and 32 consulting members. Many of the consulting members, not being professional astronomers, find it difficult to attend the General Assemblies in person. As a result, the most valuable activities of the Commission lie in the initiation and organization of ongoing projects and the sponsoring of specialist meetings, while the sessions at General Assemblies are most successful when they are also of interest to astronomers outside the Commission.
