Appointments are made yearly. The term of each appointment is three years.

The AECC shall select a Chairperson from the voting members who shall serve for one year. This person shall be responsible for communicating the AECC activity to  the General Manager.

The AECC shall also select a Secretary who will be responsible for recording the Minutes of the AECC Meetings, and presenting those Minutes to the AECC at the next regularly scheduled AECC Meeting. Upon approval by the AECC, the Chairperson shall transmit the approved Minutes to the General Manager. The AECC meetings will be held on the first Tuesday of each month at 2:00 p.m. The Chairperson reserves the right to call special meetings as needed.

Reports & AECC Minutes

The very nature of the subject matters considered by the AECC require confidentiality regarding Property Owners and their Requests for Variances and Appeals of Decisions and Fines. General publication of Property Owners/Builders Names, Lot Numbers and Addresses and AECC Decisions could cause dissension among neighbors and other Property Owners. AECC Minutes will be delivered to the General Manager.  All AECC members and all Big Canoe Employees have an obligation under the Big Canoe Policies and Procedures to maintain confidentiality regarding matters brought before the AECC and potentially on Appeal to the Big Canoe Board of Directors. The AECC Minutes will not be posted on the Big Canoe Website, but Property Owners/Builders may request excerpts from the Minutes regarding matters in which they have/had an interest. This request for Minute excerpts should be made in writing to the General Manager.
