The current bylaws, and I should say as we requested them to be written
(we are not writing them the lawyers are) are designed around the idea
of individual membership.

We want to support PUGs but want to do so in an autonomous fashion. For
example, the Conference series is a Affiliated/Sponsored project but it
is autonomous.

Financial sponsorship is on the table, although we have not yet
determined the exact details. I don't know if we want to go the SPI
route where everything is classified per project or per PUG etc...

And on that note, you realize the only reason SFPUG hasn't received any
sponsorship to date, is because SFPUG hasn't asked. (but please respond
on another thread if you wish to talk about that).
