Board members have a unique opportunity to improve the quality of life for Small District 1A-Dranesville residents.

Four adult board seats and two youth board seats. Adult qualification is being 18 years of age or older on May 17, 2024. Youth must be 15-17 years old on May 17, 2024 (McLean Day Carnival Rides and Festival)—that is, born May 18, 2006 to May 17, 2009.
