Oh jeez! This is all due to lack of reading comprehension on my part. I saw
a list of four people, and saw it as people sponsoring her, instead of
people she sponsored. And I completely glossed over the "Category: Members"
at the bottom. Don't mind me!

But hey! Now I learned that I can sponsor people for associate
membership... so long as I show up at a Tuesday meeting in-person first?
