It's necessary to define membership to avoid many disasters (I am not aware of a legal requirement, IANAL).
What may be more palatable is to state that it is a requirement that the individual wishes to further the mission of NewNOG. There may be enough language in the mission statement to achieve what most people expect a member to be. If the membership wishes to add orchids to the mission they can vote in an amendment for that and the horticulturalists can run wild.
