Hi Ronald -

"Members" are people (or more typically corporations or other legal entities) 
that have purchased an ARIN membership.  I think in general, this comes along 
with purchasing ARIN resources, i.e. requesting IP addresses or ASN's, signing 
an RSA, and paying an annual fee.  Members get to nominate and vote for 
candidates for the ARIN board and (I think) other ARIN positions.  They also get 
to participate in some internal discussions such as those about fee schedules 
and the like.

ARIN policy is decided by the "Community", which is open to anyone interested in 
the subject.  You don't need to be a member to propose, discuss or vote on 
policy, or to join the policy discussion mailing list (i.e. this list.)  There 
are a certain very limited set of topics, mostly fees, that are not regarded as 
"policy" and can't be decided by the community, but practically anything else is 
fair game.

As a human being (or a reasonably capable facsimile thereof) who is interested 
in Internet Governance (whatever that is), you certainly qualify and your vote 
counts!  Welcome to the Community!
