I'm not saying that there isn't a choice. I'm also not saying whether
a treasurer should or should not be appointed. I'm saying that I've
never seen it written that the treasurer MUST be appointed, and so I
have no reason to assume that such a rule exists.

Maybe the board is, by your reasoning, foolish to the extreme. Maybe it is not.
