Quote from a conversation between Steve and I regarding this issue:

Rules of the contest say that "member" is defined as "member at the start of the contest." If someone is a non-member "at the start of the contest", they are considered a non-member for the contest duration and give out 0000 for the whole contest regardless of whether they join during the contest.

That really only affects the contest scoring, though. Since 070 doesn't require a formal exchange of member numbers during a QSO (like 10-10), all the QSOs on or after the day of membership count for LONP for both parties. So "giving out a number" is irrelevant. Members get credit for any QSO after membership, even contest QSOs where the only exchange is SPC

So, based on this, since their membership was not approved prior to start of contest, they count as 0000 for contest purposes.  They will count as LONP for contacts made after their date of membership.
