Call for Candidates for RCA Board

Spring is in the air in Reston which means that the annual RCA election for its Board of Directors is again gearing up!

This year is an exciting one for RCA, as we are working hard to educate the community on the  new development spurred by the arrival of the Silver Line and Phase 2 of the Reston Master Plan while also recommending smart growth solutions to local and County officials and associations to help protect Restonian’s quality of life and Reston’s founding principles.

If you want to take an active role in the future of Reston, please consider running for a seat on our board!

There are five seats up for election this year: North Point Director, Lake Anne/Tall Oaks/Town Center Director, South Lakes Director, Hunters Woods Director, and At-Large Director.  Each seat carries a 3-year term.

How do you know which district you’re in? It depends on where you vote in state and federal elections. Please see the handy chart below:
  • North Point: If you vote in North Point, Stuart, or Aldrin Precincts (at Aldrin or Armstrong elementary schools)
  • Lake Anne/Tall Oaks/Town Center: If you vote in Reston I, Reston II, Reston III, or Cameron Glen Precinct (at Lake Anne or Forest Edge elementary schools)
  • South Lakes: If you vote in Sunrise Valley, South Lakes, or Terraset Precinct/(schools)
  • Hunters Woods: If you vote in Dogwood Precinct, Hunter Woods Precinct (schools), or Glade Precinct (at RCC Hunters Woods)
In order to run for a seat on the RCA Board, you must be at least 18 years old. In order to run for a District Director seat, you must live in that district. To run for At-Large Director, you may live anywhere in Small Tax District 5. All Directors serve 3-year terms. That’s it. It doesn’t matter whether you’ve lived in Reston for 30 days or 30 years, whether you’re a homeowner or a renter, what political party you belong to (RCA is non-partisan), or whether you’re younger or older (as long as you’re at least 18). 

If you want to protect Reston’s founding principles and  quality of life, please fill out an application for our election, which will be held this year between June 7 and June 22ndThe RCA application is available online here.   Your completed application must be received by RCA by May 23rd by email or mail (2033 Approach Lane, Reston, VA 20191)
