    I need to have approval OF/FROM all members.

    This is not my homework.

    In general, In American English we would either say "have approval from" or "have THE approval of."
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.

    Just to confirm the use of preposition "of/from".

    It's the same in BrE.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
