since each logged in user will have it's own MEMBER session object spawned, I wonder whether it's advisable or not putting functions inside it or should I isolate those functions in another servlet altogether? (like below, perhaps).

Alan, The Java compiler won't store a copy of the function in the session. Having menthods on your object will not make the session larger.
So you should do what is clearer. In this case, it looks like adding some methods to the Member object would be clearer than keeping them in the Servlet.
