We have a form that people sign saying they wish to participate in workshare, 
governance, and use the CH. They are essentially like full Members/Owners 
except for some financial and Association elimination decisions.

We don’t really make distinctions on a living basis. 

People who just stay over may participate in meals or special events but don’t 
come to meetings or use the CH much.
