Painful! Bylaws, officers, accounting, etc, etc, etc.

Been there, done that, nowhere near as bad as you suggest.

Meeting after meeting after meeting into the middle of the night.
For political crap, not technical learning.

With respect, I think your perception is wrong. I was involved with TriLUG for several years before coming up here, and was an officer until the day I moved to PA. Most of the business of the LUG is handled in IRC or email when votes do need to be taken up. The one guy who has a lot on his shoulders is the treasurer, but the paperwork required is similar to balancing a checkbook and filling out the IRS "short form".

The biggest pain is the initial incorporation.
