The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors established the RCC Board of Governors to represent the interests of Reston (SD 5) residents and businesses in developing policy and providing financial oversight for RCC. Board appointments are made by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors after participants have made their preferences known in the annual poll.

The Board of Governors works to establish the overall policy for RCC and to guide its programs and budget. Board members represent Reston Community Center at social, recreational, cultural and educational activities throughout the district as well as function as liaisons to RCC’s community partners.
