Junaluska Assembly Community Council



Lake Junaluska Assembly, Inc. authorizes the Junaluska Assembly Community Council (JACC) as an advisory council for Assembly Public Works. Council meetings are held on the second Tuesday of every month, except July and December, at 4 pm. Due to COVID-19, in-person meetings have been temporarily canceled; however, the public is still invited to attend and interact virtually through Zoom. While the Council looks forward to returning to in-person meetings, a hybrid meeting format including a virtual option will continue indefinitely. Meeting details will be announced monthly on the News page--sign up today to receive updates by email and never miss out on current APW news! 

The Junaluska Assembly Community Council Constitution and Bylaws establish the principles and rules by which the Council operates and also outlines the duties and authority of the Council.

The Lake Junaluska community is divided into five geographical districts of similar size and population. A representative is elected from each of the five districts, plus two at-large members elected by the community as a whole. The seven Council members serve two-year terms without compensation. Elections were last held in the summer of 2020.
