Our bylaws permit Interested Parties from executing the IPR and
participating in the public list. See Section 3.2 of the Bylaws, in
particular item (b).

The question on process is simply how must we confirm an Interested Party.
Membership applications are explicitly spelled out in 2.1, item (c) as
requiring a vote. However, no such process for Associate Members or
Interested Parties is spelled out. Historically, that's been through simple
voice confirmation on a teleconference - much in the same way that we
haven't followed the explicit ballot procedures of item (c) and also held
voice votes for membership applications.
