We're a worker-only cooperative at the moment ("directors") but I'm hoping to figure out the legal bits aorund contributor and community owners once I have a bit more bandwidth.

If polyam folks call the people they <3 sweeties / cuties, can polycoop folks call the folks they’re working with beepies (BPs for short)?
