Why is not the Board giving access to Financial Records? What to do?Apr 02, 2024

We recently had an assessment imposed in out Coop of about 380 shareholders. While it is apparent work needs to get done, a few shareholders requested in writing access to financial records. There was a letter sent to the Property manager by am attorney, and he seems to have gone crazy. It is important to mention that the Property manager is kind of the gate keeper. There is no way we can speak with the Board and when we asked for the records in a meeting, the president said "No". In the last 14 years has been no quorum, therefore, the Board Members have remained by default in their position. Please share best practices on how to get shareholders to participate so when November comes we are prepared for a new board. None wants the actual Board, but the property manager seems to intimidate people and they are scared to act.
Can we create a Facebook group? or any other platforms we can utilize?
