      Description

      An Expert can be either a Member (company) or Member Representative (person).

      A Spec Lead is an Expert.

      A Spec Lead Member is an individual JCP member (Member?), or the company that
      employs the Spec Lead.

      It seems weird that an Expert can be a company or a person and thus that a
      Spec Lead can be a company or a person, and then we need Spec Lead Member
      to refer to one of the cases.

      Wouldn't it be simpler for Expert and Spec Lead to always be a person, and then
      have Spec Lead Member (and Expert Member, if needed), to cover the cases where
      you need to refer to the company?

      Or, define Expert Representative and Spec Lead Representative to parallel
      Member Representative.

      Depends on whether most uses of (e.g.) Spec Lead intend to refer to the person
      or the company.

      It seems weird for Expert to be a company since part of the definition is
      "has expert knowledge" and "an active practitioner in the technology". Can
      a company do either of those?
