No. As one that belongs to quite a number of professional societies, they
never list what else you belong to. I fail to see what purpose is
served by tooting your horn. Unless it is intended for the outside
world, iIf it does anything it will widen
the gap between those that teach at smaller colleges and can't do much
research and those who are in the large research institutions.
Maybe that is not completely fair. Academia is slanted enough against
Christianity (se Marsden) that it could reasure folks that there are
good scientists who are good scientists. Still I really think it would
not help lay folks or members not doing a lot of research to feel at
home and we need to work on those connections.
My two cents worth.
