Read your governing documents to determine the frequency of required audits, which may be annually or every other year. Some audit specifications depend on the number of 'units' and/or the amount of the annual budget. Or there may be no requirement stated.

Once you've determined what's legally required by your Declaration -- or not, send a letter to the board requesting either proof of an audit or a copy of it. In the letter, ask that the topic be covered in a board meeting, and require a vote of the board to conduct/ prove/ share audit details with owners, who are members of the association and entitled to these details.

Your association is probably also a state-registered, non-profit corporation, and your state law relative to audits of these corporate records may also be a lever you can use, if necessary to get the information you want.
