They are disputing my right as a life time member (makes a member of the non profit for life) based on the fact that I was did not pay the yearly dues for all these ten years.The two member community claim that amendments were made to the constitution in my absence which entitles them the right to charge 1000.00 fine per year of delinquency.According to them I am not member,but member of public.Accordingly they are not obliged to show amendments or minutes to the public.About the financial records: they provided papers which is supposed (?) to be audited by a private individual for the last three years.It give some income and matching expenses.
Thank you for the advise.Your assessment is correct.These two member community is virtually keeping and using the community property for personal gains. The amendments they claim they made enabling them to charge 1000.00 fine from me and other life time members were put there to stop us from getting back in to the community.
In the absence of any other member to participate are these two members and their spouses constitute a community ?Will their decisions will be binding on the other members who were absent from the community ?
