I understand that every meeting should have an agenda, but does it state anywhere in Robert's Rules that you SHALL have an agenda? There is a huge difference in these words. In other words is the meeting " out of order" if no agenda is presented at the begining of the meeting?

Generally, no... and in fact, RONR doesn't support your statement that every meeting should have an agenda. The standard order of business is sufficient for most assemblies.

Agendas are advisable for some assemblies, such as large conventions.

No.

Can someone come in and make a presentation to a town council without being listed on the agenda? If this person or organization is allowed to make their presentation can the council vote on this? This happened at a council meeting and the council voted to give the organization a very large sum of money stating that the organization had been at previous meetings and the council knew the request was coming.

Robert's Rules doesn't forbid it, although it's quite possible that there may be relevant laws that do. This query is best directed at a lawyer.

If a board member wants an item on the agenda and the Chair and Executive Committee don't want it on the agenda can a board member or board member petition of force it on the agenda?
