Cornerstones of our Community: 2018 Best of Reston Community Service Awards
April 12

Nearly three decades ago, Cornerstones and the Greater Reston Chamber of Commerce came together in a unique collaboration that demonstrates our mutual commitment to the guiding principles of our community established by Reston founder Robert E. Simon and a shared philosophy that the collective contributions of individuals, businesses, civic and community institutions and organizations are necessary to build and sustain thriving and enriching communities. This partnership is celebrated each year in a community awards celebration.

The 2018 Best of Reston Awards Honorees have been announced! These individuals and organizations have given selflessly of their time, for the causes about which they are passionate,  and in so doing make our community stronger!

ADVOCACY CORNER
The Greater Reston Chamber collaborated with the Northern Virginia Transportation Coalition on a press release expressing support for the identification of $154 million in ongoing, dedicated funding for Metro and to call on Virginia Governor Northam to ensure that allocation of those funds do not come at the expense of other critical transportation priorities in the region. The Reston Chamber was a signatory on a letter to the Governor expressing concerns of the possibility of diverting $100 million from existing critical transportation priorities and calling for new state money to be used for the Metro funding. Read More
