To some extent this is documented on

https://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Board_Member_Bios

but this is not always up-to-date and does not necessarily contain all 
the details.

Note corporate OSMF membership does not currently come with any 
behaviour requirements so it is not really that relevant here.  We had 
some time ago a bit of discussion though on osmf-talk about if there 
should be rules related to corporate OSMF membership:

https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/osmf-talk/2019-January/005862.html

but this is more about behavioural rules.  The requirement to comply 
with the license (which is something every OSMF data users has to do) 
is not something that makes sense to specifically ask from corporate 
members.
