English term or phrase: constituency
referring to general members of a group or small membership organization, but not in the political-electoral context. The Spanglish environment in my region is saying "constituyencia", but I remain doubtful of its appropriateness for formal writing. The dictionary I have access to (Harper Collins) lists "electorado" and "distrito", both of which are too political for this context.

membership


Explanation:
the members that make up, or CONSTITUTE, the group

(by the way, you're right in shuddering at calling the constituency or the constituents what your friends suggest. In a political context, it would be votantes, el electorado, and so forth. Stick with your instincts!)

Explanation:
"Membresía" (conjunto de los miembros de una organización). The word doesn't show in the DRAE, but is of every day use in Latin America. Let's hope that one day soon those elderly gentlemen in tha "Academia" will decide to pay attention to near 500 million Spanish speakers on this side of the Atlantic Ocean.
G'luck!

You could also use the word "agremiados".


Explanation:
I believe that "membresía" is a word used oftenly in Mexico.

Since this is more a matter of private or public organizations having nothing to do with "padrón electoral", I would be hesitant to use "empadronados" or something of that nature.

Good luck!
