  1. FAQ #2 may be of use.
  2. Please post as a new topic.

  4. I think this is a legal matter, which is beyond the scope of this forum. An attorney should be consulted.

  8. Someone could be elected without being present (see RONR 11th ed., p. 444).

  20. Get more members on your side.
  21. The president normally presides (see RONR 11th ed, p. 22, ll. 33-35). The organization can choose whoever it wants to preside.
  22. No, unless the employee is a member or officer of the organization and had resigned or was elected to or expelled from membership or office.
  23. Your association could decide this issue.
  24. The reporting member of the committee presents the report of the committee.
