At the annual Members’ Meeting on Tuesday at Reston Association Headquarters (12001 Sunrise Valley Drive), the four new members of RA’s Board of Directors will be introduced.

In this year’s Reston Association board election, which ended April 3, 11 candidates ran for four positions. The winners of the election, to be announced Tuesday, will replace outgoing board members Ellen Graves, Dannielle LaRosa, Lucinda Shannon and Jeff Thomas.

The new members will join continuing members Julie Bitzer, Sherry Hebert, Michael Sanio, Eve Thompson and Ray Wedell on the board.

Also at Tuesday’s meeting:

  • Board President Ellen Graves will give the “State of the Association” report
  • CEO Cate Fulkerson will provide her report
  • the 2016 Reston Association Employee of the Year Award will be given out
  • members will be given time for comment

The meeting is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tuesday.

The board will meet for its initial meeting Wednesday. On the agenda for that meeting is the election of officers, and discussion of committees and upcoming training. Fulkerson will also present the board with its 2017 calendar and strategic issues for consideration in the next three months.

That meeting is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, also at RA Headquarters.

Both meetings will also be streamed live on Reston Association’s YouTube channel.

    It would be helpful if the tainted three step down to give RA a fresh start, and also to welcome the new candidates without them having to do their dirty laundry.

    Innocent question, why does it take so long to announce the winners when voting is eletronic?

    • John Higgins

      Fair question. Roughly one third of ballots are received by mail, so that may be a factor. But an earlier announcement would permit the new board some time to think about officer selection (they vote on new officers the day after the annual meeting).

    The first item should be the Lake White Elephant fiasco

  • fed up with RA

    Delaying the announcement of the winners until the actual annual meeting and then immediately having a board meeting is simply stupid. But then its RA so what else can one expect 🙁
