Using CASE in WHERE Clause

Hello I have the following code in my WHERE clause

AND
(
     ISNULL(m.Member,'FALSE') = 'TRUE'
     OR
     (
          ISNULL(vc.Amount,0) != 0
          AND vc.VoluntaryContributionTypeID = @contribtuionTypeID
     )
)

This works really well. However I've now been giving some additional requirements and I'm ot sure how to make the SQL work.

If a varialbe called TypeID (not shown in above code) is = 1, then I don't want the clause to evaluate this portion:

ISNULL(m.Member,'FALSE') = 'TRUE'

So if TypeID is 1, I don't care about the n.Member field, if it is not 1, I do care.

Any easy way to write that statement?
