RCA: ‘With No Mayor or City Council, Serve on the Reston Citizens Association’

This letter was submitted by members of the Reston Citizens Association. It does not reflect the opinions of Reston Now. We publish article and opinion contributions of specific interest to the Reston community. Contributions may be edited for length or content.

If you live in Reston, you surely know that it is a world-renowned master-planned community. Back in 1967, when people realized there would be no mayor or city council for our community, concerned citizens created the Reston Community Association (RCA) to represent its citizens and to monitor and encourage responsible development. Now called the Reston Citizens Association, RCA is still the only community-wide, non-partisan, and action-oriented organization in which everyone that lives, works and plays in Reston has a voice.

Want to take an active role in the future of Reston? Run for a seat on the RCA board!

There are eight seats available in the 2018 elections.  To run for a director seat, you must live in Small Tax District 5, be a Reston resident 18 years or older, and must live in the district which you plan to represent.  Elections will be held from June 7 to June 22 for four district seats and four at-large seats for its Board of Directors.

As a member of the RCA Board of Directors, you will interact with the community on the issues that impact them, meet with county and other local officials, and report on public meetings. You will collect information, provide analysis and, based upon feedback received from the public, inform various local organizations and news outlets directly about public expectations for outcomes on issues that affect Reston.

Your completed application must be sent to [email protected] by May 30. Terms begin at the June 25 board meeting. Download an application online.
