Read the agreement. It is a contract and what it says is what it means. No more and no less. Paragraph 18 states "The assets held by any Chapter are the property of the Corporation." Paragraph 36 states "Upon expulsion, dissolution or suspension of the Chapter, all assets belonging to the Corporation shall be turned over to the Corporation forthwith." A contract does not recognize "no desire on the part of TUC Corporate " to have any legal argument. Paragraph 4 gives TUC the right to expel a Chapter for whatever cause it deems reasonable with no recourse for the Chapter offered in this contract. I don't know how you can say that "nothing is lost unless we disaffiliate" . It is lost the moment we sign this agreement. I think you will find that any agreement that gives all of our assets away will require a full quorum vote at a General Meeting.
