The RCC Preference Poll is a community event held annually to select members to serve on the RCC Board of Governors. The Board of Governors establishes the overall policies for the Center and oversees its programs and budget. Board members also represent RCC at social, recreational, cultural and educational activities in Reston. Each year, typically, candidates for three seats on the Board are subject to a community preference poll with voting by residents and businesses.
This year’s preference poll will fill three positions for three-year terms on RCC’s Board of Governors. Online and mail-in balloting and walk-in voting will be available from September 13 through October 4 until 5 p.m.
The Fairfax County Board of Supervisors established the RCC Board of Governors to represent the interests of the residents of Small District 5 on issues affecting RCC. The RCC Board appointments are made by the Fairfax County Board of Supervisors after residents of Small District 5 have made their preferences known in the annual poll.
