Can an association make me pay dues to an association who threatens to impose violation penalties from committees that remain secret?
Yes, they absolutely can, and will until a court order stops them in their tracks.
There is no way to work out differences with the kind of people you are describing here. You didn't say what state you are in, but nearly every state has Adopted statutory condominium rules and regulations. You can review those, but I doubt that you'll understand the significance of them in enough detail to take on the Board yourself. Ports usually become more agreeable when they understand the costs that might be involved in defending a lawsuit. At that point the matter devolves into discussions between your lawyer and theirs. That is where matters are often resolved favorably for the homeowner.

Your question is now a direct legal question requiring an opinion of a licensed New Jersey attorney. All I can do is point out the current condominium statute, A text of which is which is At: http://www.c-ihc.org/PDF/Condominiumact.pdf. There was a massive amendment introduced in 2005, but I don't know whether it passed the legislature or not. That text is at: ftp://www.njleg.state.nj.us/20042005/S2500/2016_I1.HTM . No one would fault you for not wishing to read these massive statutes, trying to find an extremely small point of regulation, such as providing names of committee members. I urge you to consult with a local attorney who might be familiar with cases dealing with condo associations which are similar to yours.
