Membership was limited to 100 women. Members had to reside in the Morningside neighborhood (some non-residents who were members before this rule took effect were exempt from this requirement).

Typically each regular club meeting had at least one hostess. The program was set by members of one of the sections The object of the club was to stimulate intellectual and moral development, to promote good fellowship among its members and to strength their individual effort for humanity by efficient organization.
