Refusal to hold an AGM

In Vic so the rule is it has to be held every 15 months.  18 months ago this was breached and AGM was only held after consumer affairs got involved, manager fully aware of the state of play has now gone 18 months since the last and continues to send levy notices when there is effectively no valid budget.  Contact has been made asking for a date, was given a loose time frame for a meeting to be held which has now passed and now a second levy notice has been sent 6 weeks after the last qtrly one for a budget that does not even exist.  Manager believes he has a right to keep billing owners, at random time frames no less, without holding an AGM.  OC is completely dysfunctional, possibility for a case study to be made for future references of education of OC managers when Victoria finally passes some new laws to hold managers to account.  I know the answers will be contact the comittee or chair, I am supposedly on the comittee after the last AGM yet have never been invited to a meeting in 18 months, there is people on it who think this the way to do things.  Resolutions are passed without notice or being put in exact terms in writing, special meetings are held to deal with a seperate issue with 48hours notice yet you turn up and the agenda is completely changed on arrival, my guess is voting rights are not being followed correctly either but nobody would know because there is no reports to follow on who is financial.  Consumer affairs seems to be useless if they cant force change, VCAT looks like the only option and I’m happy to do it, will likely be looking for a new lawyer to settle a buliders warranty claim anyway so they can get both jobs.

Any advice is welcomed and would be pleased if someone could recommend any professional that could help.
