    the vs their

    Sports governing bodies are typically non-profit organizations in that their profits are not distributed among the/their members.

    I'm pretty sure "their" is correct, but I'm wondering whether "the" would be acceptable.

    Thanks.

    Re: the vs their

    Both are okay, though I'd change "their profits are not" to "their revenue is not".
