There are three levels of membership for this website: Member, Associate and Guest.
"Members" are long-standing members of the band who make the final decisions as to which shows we play at, what songs we play, and other decisions about how to structure band activity.
"Associates" are people who assist with various band activities, including playing at some or even all band concerts, providing feedback on songs, writing lyrics, assisting with costumes, doing publicity and just generally helping out in other ways. Recently-added band members start off as associates and may be invited to become members at some point, but associates might also be simply people who sit in with us at gigs from time to time, for whom it is helpful to have access to the forums where we discuss music and other band activity.
"Guests" are people who follow The Remediators' activity with some level of interest, but do not participate directly in preparing for or performing at concerts.
