Reston Community Center has hired a new director of offsite and collaborative programming in an effort to expand beyond the walls of its two facilities.

Maggie Parker, who most recently served as executive director of Partnership Reston, will take on the role, which includes directing offsite programming like the summer concert series and family-friendly events in area neighborhoods.

“Working with the outstanding staff at RCC to deliver its fabulous programming throughout Reston will be exciting and fulfilling for me,” says Parker. “Reston Community Center’s mission reflects one of the founding precepts of the Reston vision – namely, to provide a variety of leisure opportunities, including a wide range of cultural and recreational facilities. This department will continue moving RCC beyond its brick-and-mortar homes to build community for everyone, everywhere in Reston.”

Parker managed public relations for Reston-based developer Comstock Companies and oversaw event productions, community outreach and public relations with Myers Public Relations, another Reston-based company. She was also selected as Best of Reston honoree in 2019.

The hire comes as RCC combines its community events and outreach and collaboration units to keep pace with new services.

“We are thrilled to bring Maggie aboard to shepherd the planning and execution of a growing array of offerings for Reston neighborhoods,” RCC Executive Director Leila Gordon said.
