For Immediate Release: July 17, 2014
RESTON, VA — Reston Community Center (RCC) is seeking interested candidates to run for seats on its Board of Governors. The Board of Governors is a nine-member body responsible for oversight of the RCC. All residents of Small District 5, age 18 or older, are eligible to run for appointment to the RCC Board of Governors. Candidates must complete a Candidacy Statement in order to have their names placed on the Preference Poll ballot. Candidacy Statements will be available at the Center or online at www.restoncommunitycenter.com beginning at 9:00 a.m. on Friday, August 1. The deadline for candidacy filing is 5:00 p.m. on Friday, August 15.
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 priorities for 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 located in Small District 5 (largely Reston zip codes).
This year’s Preference Poll will fill three positions for three-year terms. Online and mail-in balloting and walk-in voting will be available from September 12 through October 3 until 5:00 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.
