I'll add that I've been chatting with some of our associates who are NOT happy 
with our policy.

Essentially "have the same rights and responsibilities as members" does not 
feel good to folk who try to live up to the letter of the law. 

Despite very active involvement they feel guilty for not coming to meetings, 
don't WANT to be allowed to speak to "what its like to live here" issues, feel 
they should not have equal role in consensus decision making, and don't think 
they should have to do the same level of work.

So we still have some work to do.
