2. the widest possible and feasible utilization of the knowledge and skills of sociologists and the findings of scientific sociological research by public and private agencies in all relevant social policy issues;
3. effective teaching of the subject matter at all levels of educational endeavor;
4. interchange and cooperative relations among persons and organizations engaged in the scientific study of society; any and all such other acts as may be deemed conductive to these ends.

Membership in the NCSA shall be open to all persons interested in and subscribing to its objectives and who have been awarded or are pursuing a graduate degree or an undergraduate degree  in Sociology or in closely related fields from accredited institutions.

Persons lacking these qualifications may also become members if they present evidence of professional competence and commitment to the field of Sociology.
