I agree with Daniel that "Application" is a grossly overused verb, but  
I don't think "Developer Membership Board" is good either. You can't  
really be a "member of a developer" which is what the construct implies.

Here are some other suggestions:

- Developer Recruitment Board (or D. Recruiting Board)
- Developer Enrollment Board
- Developer Engaging Board
- Developer Triaging Board
- Developer Evaluation Board
- Developer Team Membership Board

these have slightly different meanings of course, so there's a pallet  
of options. Some of them have the acronym DEB which is perhaps  
confusing (or cute, depending on your outlook :-))
