Alexandria Virginia condo with hole in roof and blind board

I saw a hole in my roof while driving by my condo. I notified the management company in writing and they passed it on to the board of directors. Approximately, a week went by and I did not hear back and no repair was made. It rained during that time.

When I ran into a board member and asked about it, I was told one of the members looked and didn't see anything. Nothing is being done. The hole is so large I can see it from the road. Now the overhang of my condo has warped boards, cracks and mold spores directly under the area of the hole. The spires are black and fuzzy. I am afraid they will spread and the overhang will break. What can I do?
