as FOSSCOMM is a collection of individuals and organisations, we have the 
following use cases:
1. A person belonging to an organisation, but in FOSSCOMM in his individual 
capacity - then nature of his organisation is irrelevant.
2. A person representing an organisation in FOSSCOMM - nature of organisation 
is relevant

In the case of individuals belonging to organisations that may not be 
acceptable as FOSSCOMM members, the individual should not mind if he is asked 
to clarify his stance.
