Reston Community Center is pleased to announce the hiring of Maggie Parker as the Director of Offsite and Collaborative Programs.
As RCC enhances its commitment to reaching the community outside of the walls of RCC’s two facilities, Parker will direct all offsite programming, including its extensive Summer Concert Series and family-friendly events at Reston Opportunity Neighborhood sites.
Parker has an impressive history of public and community relations as well as events management in Reston. She most recently was the Executive Director of Partnership Reston, and she served for more than 10 years in various roles in strategic communication, community, government and public relations for Comstock Companies. She was formerly with Reston-based Myers Public Relations, overseeing community event production, public relations and community outreach.
“We are combining our Community Events and Outreach and Collaboration units and adding capacity to the new department to help keep pace with the growth in our services,” notes RCC Executive Director Leila Gordon. “We are thrilled to bring Maggie aboard to shepherd the planning and execution of a growing array of offerings for Reston neighborhoods.”
Parker is a Reston resident involved in many community organizations, including as chair of Public Art Reston. She was a Best of Reston honoree in 2019.
“Working with the outstanding staff at RCC to deliver its fabulous programming throughout Reston will be exciting and fulfilling for me,” says Parker. “Reston Community Center’s mission reflects one of the founding precepts of the Reston vision – namely, to provide a variety of leisure opportunities, including a wide range of cultural and recreational facilities. This department will continue moving RCC beyond its brick-and-mortar homes to build community for everyone, everywhere in Reston.”
Parker will begin her new role on August 29.
