The image doesn't need to be square - but should be relatively square. When the page is displayed at run-time, some code will execute and the image will change to a circle.The extra white space between the member names in the right hand purple column will be removed when the page is displayed. It doesn't matter if there is some extra space between the members here.
To change the links below the members "view members, blog, recent publications", etc right click on the link and select "Change link" from the popup context menu. Use the menu builder to make a new link. You can filter the membership directory by subgroup and a few other parameters. Maybe that will help.

Environment & Society Thematic Group
Aims and Objectives
Year established: 2006
The TASA Thematic Group on Environment and Society aims to bring together TASA members who have an interest in environmental issues and to stimulate wider interest in the field of environmental sociology. The objectives are:
- To provide a means of connection between sociologists who study or work in the area of environment and society.
- To promote environmental sociology to the wider sociological community and thus to encourage a stronger interest in society’s interaction with the environment among practising sociologists and sociology students.
- To strengthen relationships between Australian environmental sociology and international groups such as the International Sociological Association’s Research Committee on Environment and Society (RC24).
- To promote awareness outside academia of sociology’s potential contribution to environmental issues.
- To meet initially once yearly at the annual TASA conference to share research and study interests; identify opportunities to connect with external groups and agencies; discuss current topical issues, and to develop strategies that will enable communication within and promotion of the group.
