Reston Association is asking members interested in taking over for Ray Wedell, who has vacated his seat on the RA Board of Directors, to put their names in the hat.
Anyone interested in serving out the remainder of the term of the at-large seat, which runs through April, is asked to submit a statement of candidacy by noon Friday, Sept. 22. Completed applications can be sent in by mail (12001 Sunrise Valley Drive, Reston, VA 20191-3404); by email to the board’s assistant secretary, Sabrina Tadele ([email protected]); or in-person at RA headquarters.
Certified candidates will meet with the board at its Thursday, Sept. 28 meeting to discuss interests and qualifications.
Wedell stepped down last week, citing in his statement that his “successes have been outweighed by the frustrations.” He had served on the board since 2015 and was also on the Board Operations Committee, which is responsible for reviewing and setting board agenda items each month.
RA is issuing the call for candidates after receiving “unanimous consent” from the Board of Directors to do so. The seat is one of four that will be up for vote in the 2018 election.
