Does the ACC Answer to the HOA Board?

Question:

What, in Texas, is the relationship between a BOD with elected members and the Board-appointed members of an Architectural Control Committee? It is the Board’s contention that, for the lack of a better term, the ACC “answers” to the BOD…that the “buck stops” with the Board. Members of the ACC assert that they are autonomous and do not “answer” to anyone. When asked to explain to the Board an oversight in a new-home plan submission, ACC contends that their integrity is being questioned. Thank you for your reply.

Answer:

Hi Meg,

Generally speaking, the role of the Architectural Control Committee is to help the HOA board manage and oversee architectural applications as well as conduct architectural inspections, among other things. In that sense, the ACC does answer to the board. In many cases, the ACC only provides recommendations to the board, with the board having the final say on things. But, it really depends on the way your HOA is organized. Make sure to check your governing documents to understand the role of your ACC better.
