How to get floor fixed properly by association

My American cherry hardwood floors have become water damaged at the entrance and in the hallway due to a plumbing issue in my building. Soapy washing machine water has entered my unit on several occasions through my washing machine drainage hole.

The property management group that works alongside the board members told me to send pics and I told them I was getting estimates. They came into my unit and acknowledged the problem.

The problem is that the hardwood floor companies said they can't match the hardwood - it isn't being made anymore and is quite distinct in its aging, etc.

Can we have a remote board member via Skype?

We have a board member that is going away to school for nine months and wants to stay on the board and participate in meetings via Skype and email. The other board members would prefer that he resign and run for a board office when he returns. We could have him voted out by 67% of associations members but that seems like it could be very derisive for the community. We have tried reasoning with him as we believe it would put a hardship on other board members if he is not able to physically be here to work with the community. Does anyone have any thoughts on how to handle this. Thanks for you input.  Washington.
