The Member Of tab lists the groups to which the contact belongs. If the Show nested groups check box is selected, the list also includes the groups to which the contact belongs due to group nesting.

You can modify the list on the Member Of tab using the Add and Remove buttons. Clicking Add displays the Select Objects dialog box where you can type or select the names of the groups you want to add to the list. Clicking Remove deletes the selection from the list.
