2. When an attender becomes a member, he or she is making a personal and public commitment to seeking and being attentive to the Divine Presence. She or he also makes a commitment to remain part of the Meeting even if the Meeting appears not to be functioning in a way he or she wants. A member commits to nurturing the Meeting by helping with the work of the Meeting through committees, by attending Meeting for Worship and Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business, and by supporting the meeting financially, as the person is able.

3. When an attender becomes a member, she or he can expect the Meeting to nurture her or his spiritual needs, which requires the individual to express those needs.
