Our board agenda is distributed one to two days before each meeting.  Can an item be introduced, debated, and voted upon without being on the agenda?

Yes.

The party who drafted an agenda has no power to exclude the business coming from the membership. -- The drafter is an individual, and has no such monopoly on business of an entire organization.

The written agenda has not been adopted (or processed in any way). -- It is just a list, which hopes to be accepted as legitimate. And might not!

Even if an agenda has been formally adopted, bringing up new business in the section of the aganda for new business, if there is such a section on the agenda, is permissible unless the society has adopted a special rule of order specifically prohibiting business from being introduced unless listed on the agenda.  Such a rule is in the nature of a rule of order and could be suspended by a two thirds vote.  Not many organizations have such a rule, but they do exist.
