(Updated at 10:20 a.m.) Reston Association’s Board of Directors still faces a vacancy just after filling three board seats with this year’s election.

The board announced the resignation of Timothy Dowling, who recently completed one year as an at-large board member, at a meeting last night (Wednesday).

It was the same night newly elected board members held their first meeting and elected board officers. Laurie Dodd, Glenn Small and Irwin Flashman were elected to the board by the membership in an uncontested election. Results were announced on Tuesday (April 12).

In a letter to board president Caren Anton, Dowling said he will “be pursuing other opportunities to serve the Reston community.”

“It has been an honor serving on the Board under your leadership to benefit our members and support the Association’s outstanding staff,” he wrote.

In a release, RA called the resignation “unexpected.”

That leaves RA to issue another call for candidates to apply for the position. Applications are due on April 28 by 9 a.m. The board will discuss the pool of staff-certified candidates at its May 26 meeting.

The new board member’s term would run through April 2023, because the position is board-appointed. The seat will then be placed on the election ballot next year, with the winner rounding out the final year of Dowling’s term in 2024.
