(2) The address in this state, including the street address, if any, of the association or, if the association does not have an address in this state, its out-of-state address;
(3) That the association is an unincorporated nonprofit association; and
(4) The name, title, or position of a person authorized to transfer an interest in real property held in the name of the association.
