The Board of Governors is a nine-member body responsible for oversight of RCC. All residents of Small District 5, ages 18 or older, are eligible to run for appointment to the RCC Board of Governors.
The Preference Poll is a community event held annually to guide selection of members to serve on the Board of Governors. The Board establishes the overall policies for RCC and priorities for its programs and budget. Members also represent RCC at social, recreational, cultural and educational activities in Reston.
Each year, typically, candidates for three seats on the Board of Governors are subject to a community preference poll with voting by residents and businesses located in Small District 5 (largely Reston ZIP codes).
Key Dates for the 2023 Preference Poll:
August 1 – 15: Candidate Filing
August 15: Candidate Orientation
September 8 – 29: Preference Poll Voting
