I know form previous discussions wearing my GeoTools hat that you
have to be a legally constituted body to join the OGC, having a
mailing list, web site and SVN wasn't enough which is why GeoTools
never became a member (even though a majority of our developers are
members). I guess that OSGeo could become a member if the board
thought that paying the money was worth it.
You could also just attend the meetings as a non-member as Paul Ramsey
does sometimes, or just ask some of us who do go to meetings to make
your points for you.
