Ok, how about:
"A person desiring [active/voting] membership must be determined
to have made significant contribution to the Free Software community or to
another activity or project directly relating to the [published] goals and
ideals of SPI. This determination will be made by the Membership
Committee acting on behalf of the membership of SPI."

Then you can put the standard "SPI will not discriminate
on the basis of race, color, age, sex, sexual preference, species or
anything else" clause at the bottom of the whole document.
