It is up to you folks but I strongly suggest *not* having companies be 
members. If you want companies to be *sponsors* that is good but the 
moment you allow companies to be members, they will *expect* something 
for that money. Explicitly things like direction and certain amounts of 
control.

People are members, companies are sponsors. I would also suggest that 
sponsorships be clearly defined as to the benefits thereof.

Sincerely,

Joshua D. Drake
