Kathy, can you clarify what you mean by "associate membership"? Is this a marketing tool that is seen as, hopefully, a stepping-stone toward actual membership, or is it envisioned as a permanent status as "friends of the community" for people who will probably never move in but they want to be connected?

Our group Eldergreen Cohousing in Carrboro NC is in the process of
forming our LLC.  We don't have land yet but we are talking to a couple
of developers and have some leads so its time to get real.  We have been
meeting for two years and have our values and mission and  dedicated
core group but we have not put up significant $$. We have been working
outlining what we want in our operating agreement to give to our
attorney and one of the areas we have discussing the pros and cons of
having associate members and I am wondering how many other groups have
or have had associate members and how were they treated as far as
decision making.
