Can a Board member make a motion that a Special Called Board Meeting be closed to the general association membership?

Yes. It is classified as a Question of Privilege (which see).

Are there any special rules about excluding general members from a Board of Directors' meeting?

No.

RONR says that a board may meet 100% of the time in a ("closed") executive session.

However, check your own bylaws to see if they have something to say about general membership access to board meetings. Bylaws supersede RONR. So, if your bylaws guarantee general membership access to ALL board meetings, for example, you have a different situation. Also, according to RONR, an assembly does not need to be in executive session in order to exclude non-members (non-members of a body have no inherent right to attend ANY meeting of that body, executive session or not).
