  4. Feb 13, 2004 President Ikeda: “People everywhere are searching for a philosophy of peace. Today the development of the SGI-USA movement is increasingly important. The world is watching in expectation. Let us strive even more energetically to expand our humanistic alliance. I dearly wish that every person without exception becomes happy in life.”

  5. Why A Statistics Program? • Key Purpose of Statistics is Care of Members--Reporting isa Result of This Effort • We are at crucial stage of development for which we need to ensure care of each member including returning members; this is key to our growth • To measure our progress towards establishing SGI-USA as the driving force for Kosen-Rufu and accomplishing our goals towards 2006 and 2010

  6. Importance of Statistics • “The Soka Gakkai will be an organization of shakubuku and kosen-rufu for all eternity. For this reason, membership statistics is the most essential foundation for the Soka Gakkai’s progress, which is the Buddha’s intent and mandate. Membership statistics is a lifeline for our unshakable development into the eternal future of the Latter Day of the Law.” • “The membership statistics that you compile are the mathematics of compassion that seek to express and actualize kosen-rufu. Only through accurate figures can we see our next move, and our goals will become clear.” (President Ikeda’s Guidance on Dec 24, 2002 issue of the Seikyo Shimbun)

  7. Membership Card • “A membership card is not a piece of paper; it is the life of one person. In it his life pulsates, her personality is contained and the drama of awakening in faith and rebirth is played out. There exist the human-to-human bonds of warm trust. Because we have been cherishing each person to the utmost, we see the magnificent development of the Soka Gakkai today.” (President Ikeda’s Guidance on Dec 24, 2002 issue of the Seikyo Shimbun)

  8. Membership--Basic Principles • Any Locatable Member Who Has Not Renounced SGI-USA Membership • Not Concerned w/ “Active” vs “Inactive” • Measuring Number of Individuals Not Households • Principle of “Inclusion” vs. “Exclusion”

  9. Membership Cards are Filled Out for: • Existing Members • Including children of all ages • Family members who are supportive and essentially consider themselves to be SGI-USA members, although participation may not be as regular. • New Members • A membership card will be filled out for each new member at the same time as the Gohonzon application [New Procedure] • Members Returning to the Organization or Who Become Locatable And Consider Themselves to Be Members • For those who have been located but do not want to be considered a member, a separate list should be maintained
