Reston Association is in the midst of drafting its strategic plan for the next five years, as well as the 2016-17 budget and would like to hear from its members on these topics.
RA is planning four district meetings in March where it will give the details to participants, who can also discuss what they would like to see as priorities for the budget cycle and the strategic plan.
Topics include: current budget overview and Q-and-A session with RA staff; a strategic plan update; a member input activity; information on RA services; an an opportunity to cast your vote in the 2015 RA Board of Directors Election.
RA CEO Cate Fulkerson said the member input activity will be to see where the members’ want their money to go. There will be buckets with various categories, and members will put fake money in the buckets to “cast a vote” for where the RA’s real money should be spent.
