I am SPI contributing member and I am unregularly attending SPI monthly IRC meetings since roughly the I joined Debian. SPI is special because it is mentionned in the Debian constitution, most importantly in 7.2: If the Project Leader and the current Project Secretary cannot agree on a new appointment they must ask the board of SPI (see §9.1.) to appoint a Secretary. Debian is well represented within SPI since the President and most of the board are Debian developers, and more than two hundreds Debian developers are SPI contributing members. What limits the relationship between Debian and SPI in my view is that Debian operate world-wide but various regulations impede SPI actions outside the US, in particular the cost of international money transfers.
