As a member of the Reston Citizens Association Board of Directors, you will interact with our 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 directly and news outlets about public expectations for outcomes on issues that affect Reston. RCA is part of the Coalition for a Planned Reston.

Terms begin at the June 25 board meeting. Meetings are held generally on the 4th Monday of the month from 7:30 – 9 pm at 11890 Sunrise Valley Drive, Reston.

Founded in 1967, RCA is the only community-wide, non-partisan, and action-oriented organization in which everyone that lives, works and plays in Reston has a voice. A 13-member Board of Directors elected by Reston residents with the directors serving three-year terms governs RCA. One year seats may be appointed in uncontested races. Elections will be held from June 7 to June 22 for four district seats and four at-large seats for its Board of Directors.
