Legal Particularities of OSMF Membership vs. Local Chapter Membership

Would there be a distinguished OSMF membership and/or OSM Chapter membership or the member of either or both be shown? Does chapter membership inherent OSMF membership? If not, should it?

No, they are legally separate things.

Maybe? It’s not a bad idea. However “OSMF membership” has certain weird legal requirements (“OSMF assoc. membership” doesn’t). Trying to automate (if you sign up for this LC you’re a legal member of this English-and-Welsh company) is… complicated. Given OSMF membership (or assoc.) is easy to achieve, I don’t think it’s worth automating.

The same is generally true going the other way. Each country has slightly different legal requirements around membership.

This topic, while related, was determined to be specific enough to warrant its own thread. At the request of a community member, I created a separate thread for this topic.
