Each coven - like a local cell group - usually is made up of 13 members. But the Brotherhood/Illuminati is a much bigger internetional network spread all over with many covens, local, regional, national and international subdivisions.

Must i remind you Illuminati means to enlighten, and there are only a special few (300 or so) of the richest, who are really the true decision makers of this world..
The Illuminati/Brotherhood are without a doubt the richest and most influential people in the world. Or at least, the richest and most influential religion/instuition/society in the world. But that does not mean that every member is himself a millionaire - the group no doubt has millions, billions even, at their disposal, and the member benefit from this, but it is possible for anyone who is wiling/interested to be recruited into the Brotherhood and rise up through the ranks.
I think the number 300 is speculative at best. Its impossible for us to know how many members they have but I believe it is certainly many more than 300. At very least they will have more than one group "coven" in each major city, so in the US alone there would be many more members than 300. There are certain dates of the year which are very important significance to them and attendace at the celebrations/ceremonies can quite easily number in the thousands. Now ofc the decisions are only made by those high up in the hierarchy, who pertain to have direct contact with the "higher masters" / spiritual entities. So yeah. And I would say that all, or at least the overwhelming majority, of those in high positions are NOT public figures in any way or form. Well known celebrities, socialiates, aristocracy, business men, entrepeneurs, political figures...may be part of the Brotherhood/Illuminati, or at least, be indirectly in their pay through some of their various companies etc, but they are the ones who received orders from higher up the ladder, from priests and priestesses who dedicate their life to the society and who spend their time administrating the world's biggest instituition and ensure its goals are implemented on regional, national and international levels.
