Reston Association Board to Choose New Treasurer at Thursday Meeting

Two applicants have put their names in the hat for the position of Reston Association treasurer, and the Board of Directors will make its decision this week.

According to the packet for Thursday’s meeting, Sridhar Ganesan and Michael Werner have applied for the role. They are the only individuals who responded to a call for candidates that had a May 19 deadline. The board will vote by secret ballot Thursday.

Ganesan is president of the Reston Citizens Association and also heads the Mediaworld LLC group that sought to conduct the Tetra/Lake House review. He works as CFO of Planet 3, an exploration-based learning company. In his application letter to the RA Board, he said he believes he has “the technical skills and work experience, as well as commitment to public service in Reston to successfully perform [as treasurer] on the RA Board.”

Werner has been a member of the Reston Association Fiscal Committee since 2014. He is executive vice president of Impexium, a company that develops and sells software to associations. In his letter, he said his background has been in accounting and he believes “that getting involved in the fiscal matters best suits [his] abilities and temperament.”

Former board member Dannielle LaRosa had served as treasurer since 2015. She stepped down from the board effective April 11, and the board voted at its March 23 meeting to put out the call for treasurer applicants. At a meeting April 12, the board voted to retain LaRosa as treasurer until the call for candidates was completed.

LaRosa was eligible to reapply for the position but declined.

Other issues on the agenda for Thursday’s meeting of the Reston Association Board of Directors include:

  • vote on adoption of the proposed Community Engagement Plan for Major Capital Projects
  • a land-use update on Fairfax County’s proposed zoning ordinance amendment to increase the population density limit in Reston’s Planned Residential Community District
  • action on a covenants complaint regarding Airbnb rentals at a home on Trails Edge Lane
  • a lake-use request for the Lake Anne Cardboard Box Regatta, slated for August
  • committee appointments

The Reston Association Board of Directors will meet at 6:30 p.m. Thursday at RA headquarters (12001 Sunrise Valley Drive). The meeting will also be streamed on Reston Association’s YouTube channel.
