Reston Association’s Board of Directors has a new vacancy.

Mike Collins — who represents apartment owners within RA’s membership — resigned Friday (Sept. 29).

Collins, who also served as the board’s secretary, said he resigned due to new career commitments.

Board president John Farrell thanked Collins for his leadership and “multiple stints of service” for Restonians.

“We wish him and his family the very best and thank him for his many contributions to our community,” Farrell wrote in a statement.

The vacancy triggers a new election process. Nominations will be accepted through noon on Oct. 12. Apartment owners — known as Category B members — will then receive a list of nominees and get a five-day voting period, after which staff will announce the results.

The new board member will begin the position on Oct. 26.

Collins joined the board in April 2020. He was reelected this April for a second three-year term and previously served on the board from 2010 to 2013.

This is the second unplanned vacancy to open on RA’s board this year after former president Sarah Selvaraj-D’Souza resigned in May.

The nine-member board consists of one apartment representative, four district directors and four at-large members. Members typically serve three-year, staggered terms.
