I don't know about the rest of the world but in Russia the membership 
was not encouraged. I think, if all people who once expressed their 
with to join were accepted at once, we could have now 100 or even 200 
members. And it is a lower esteem, as 5000 copies of a theosophical 
book are being sold within a year. The books which are specific and 
not popular (like "Man: fragments of forgotten history" are sold in 
1500 copies per 4 years). It seems to be faster than world sales of 
TPH, where one can buy books printed 20 years ago (I did this at least 
three times).

I don't mean that we should preach theosophy (there are different 
opinions on this) but speak about the people who are already 
acquainted with theosophy and could become the members if the 
appropriate condidions were provided for them.
