How do we force condo association board to follow state law?

Posted by stephen polinsky on Wed, Sep 7, 2011 @ 08:00 AM

We are a 24 unit condo in Iowa with a 5 member board. In 2010 the State of Iowa passed a law regarding condo board meetings stating that meetings be open to all members, with a 7 day notice , minutes to be available to all members, and that any action taken during a meeting not meeting these requirements would be invalid or enforceable. Our board is well aware of this state law, and in fact one member of the board has on occasion refused to attend a meeting that was held secretly without notice. The other 4 members of the board continue to hold meetings with no or improper notice to the members. What procedure is available to force this board to follow state laws?

And is it required by Iowa law to have copies of all said correspondence need to be contained within the Legal Binder of the Association?
