Not unless one/more of those contributors is themselves a Member/Officer
of the ASF - see Sectopn 4.1 of the Bylaws
(http://apache.org/foundation/bylaws.html#4.1) which states the following:

To be eligible for membership, a person or entity must be nominated by a
current member of the corporation and must complete a written membership
application in such form as shall be adopted by the Board of Directors
from time to time


Therefore contributors of a project can't directly, I guess they could
talk to ASF members they know and suggest that person with the aim of
getting a nomination but not being a member myself I'm not sure if that
would be acceptable behaviour.  Ultimately ASF is a meritocracy and my
personal impression based on people who I know of who've become members in
the past couple of years is that to become a member you need to be active
across the foundation (not just within a small part of it) for a prolonged
period.

One thing worth asking is why the community you are involved in feels the
need to have someone be elected as a Member?
