      I would venture to guess that most amateur radio club constitutions or by-laws (at least here in the U.S.) don't address the issues you bring up. Most of the ones I've seen are just not that detailed. I know that the sample constitution that the ARRL publishes (http://www.arrl.org/files/file/Clubs/Club%20Constitution.pdf) don't address them.

      What might serve as some guidance are the constitutions/charters of some of the new "hacker" groups. Many of these were formed to share the use of tools such as lathes and CNC machines. I'll check with our local hacker group and see how they address these issues.
