Be a part of Reston’s future: Join the RA Board of Directors

When Robert E. Simon first founded Reston nearly 60 years ago, he envisioned a community that would stress quality of life and allow its residents to live, work, and play in their own community, with common grounds and scenic beauty shared equally.

Today, Reston has grown to be one of the most well-known and respected communities in the region, and the views of Simon’s guiding principles remain.

The work to keep that valued balance between “live, work and play” falls to Reston Association and its Board of Directors, and more than ever, those Directors play a key role in ensuring Reston maintains its character as a community and its commitment to housing, open space and community amenities. If you’ve ever considered leading the way in Reston’s vision for the future, I urge you to consider running for a seat on the Board of Reston Association.

Reston Association’s Board of Directors help guide the policies and procedures for the Association and help to maintain the 50+ miles of paths and trails, the recreational programs and amenities, the facilities and events that RA oversees each year. The RA Board helps develop the Association’s annual budget and looks at capital projects throughout our community.

What’s more, the RA Board of Directors are the ones who help ensure Reston remains a community that is sustainable, inclusive and resilient.

If you value Reston’s history and want to ensure its place in the future, I urge you to consider running for a seat on the Reston Association Board of Directors.

A Candidate Information Session will be held Tuesday, January 16. All candidate submissions are due by Friday, January 26 at 5 p.m. Visit our website to learn more.
