The Reston Runners Board of Directors consists of four club officers, four members at large, and a Director of Walking Programs.  Below is a general description of the responsibilities of the various positions on the Reston Runners Board of Directors. In considering nominating a candidate or accepting a nomination, members should be aware that the traditional duties associated with the various positions are only part of the job of that position. The Board meets at least once a month and all members are expected to attend the meetings. Responsibility for arranging a venue for the meeting will be rotated among each of the board members.  In these meetings, the Board acts as a Committee of the Whole, and each member, irrespective of their office, will be involved in discussing and making decisions which will affect the entire Club. Additionally, Board members rotate doing the announcements at the start of weekend run/walk.  From time to time, Board member are asked to assume responsibilities which go beyond the normal duties of their office. These may include planning and managing events, attending meetings with local officials, gathering data for various functions, or performing other outreach activities consistent with the Club's mission and goals. Reading and responding to emails is an ongoing daily requirement.

The Director assists with the coordination of walks that are held simultaneous with club runs. The position may also require development, testing, and recording the directions of new walk courses, the amendment as necessary of courses which are no longer useful for a growing number of walkers, and updating of existing walk course directions as well as re-measurement of them as necessary for better accuracy.
