Griffin Klema's answer It sounds like the fraternity is a voluntary non-profit organization. In the U.S. we enjoy what is called freedom of contract, which allows us to make agreements for all kinds of things. Sometimes agreements can't be enforced (even if you sign them). What the document is describing sounds draconian and far-reaching, and you have good reason to question it.

Terrence H Thorgaard's answer Obviously the attorney's duties (as trustee, I assume) are not done, at least until the checks are properly written, accepted, and deposited. It looks like the attorney wants to meet with you about this, which also indicates that the matter is not over.

Bruce Alexander Minnick's answer Each state has statutes controlling the issue of whether their citizens can or cannot record conversations of other people without informing the other parties; the federal rule is that recordings are legal if only one party consents. You should consult a Kansas lawyer.
Timur Akpinar's answer Based on these facts alone, it's difficult to say what the chances of recovery are. You could consult with an attorney to learn if you might have a cost-effective recourse through a lawsuit, arbitration, attorney’s letter, or other avenue. The attorney would likely want to see the agreement into which you entered to review its terms and conditions.
