The Questioner needs to submit a motion on the financial situation, and then have a recorded vote on the motion. If tabled (likely), get a recorded vote on both motions. The first motion might be as simple as the bylaws requiring an independent review, compilation, or audit every x years (beginning this year), or perhaps something more complex such as amending the bylaw's descriptions of the Chairman, Vice Chairman, and Treasurer to require that all three be bank signatories. The bylaws should not allow the Treasurer to establish a new bank/credit card/debit/square/payroll/etc account without the approval of the Board, and since there are few 30-year-old banks, this seems likely to have occurred during one of the recent banking panics. Once the bylaws are amended, then the Board can enforce the revised bylaws. But the Questioner does need immediate proof by way of a Board vote that she/he is NOT party to the lax governance that has gone 30 years without a review of the books. I'm rolling on the floor, laughing out loud on this question.
