Give Back to the Community!
Run for A Seat on MCC’s Governing Board

The McLean Community Center is looking for district residents to serve on its Governing Board. The Board, which is composed of volunteers elected by the community, sets policy, approves budgets and provides general oversight for Center programs and facilities. Board members have a unique opportunity to improve the quality of life for Small District 1A-Dranesville residents.

Three adult board seats and two youth board seats. Adult qualification is being 18 years of age or older on May 20, 2023. Youth must be 15-17 years old on May 20, 2023 (McLean Day)—that is, born May 21, 2005, to May 20, 2008.
