Hardly any are, including existing members. Those that are identified to 
the foundation are so because of other current or former positions.

AFAIK, it's not been a requirement and it wasn't stated as a requirement 
in the call for (self-)nomination, which I was slightly surprised at 
initially but seeing as there's no access to either restricted 
permissions or non-public data[1], is thus not covered by the Access to 
nonpublic data policy[2].
