ODCA's Executive Committee is composed of all ODCA officers as well as the most recent past president and the NCAC (Neighborhood Conservation Advisory Committee) representative. The Committee acts as the principal governing board of the association between the regular membership meetings. This group also helps the President to ensure that the best interests of the association are well represented before Arlington County.
My wife Mary and I moved here 20 years ago, and we love it because it is so close to everything, yet has a real sense of community. I got involved with ODCA to make sure that we can improve our neighborhood and leave a better community for the future.
I’ve lived in the Old Dominion neighborhood with my family for more than 30 years. During that time I have seen many changes, including improved sidewalks and streets, an increase in the number of families with school age children, and a genuine commitment to the neighborhood and its heritage. I am proud to serve as Old Dominion's Vice President!
My family and I moved to the Old Dominion neighborhood in 2011. I love that it is a warm and inviting community. I joined ODCA to focus on neighborhood concerns and build our community relationships.
My family and I moved to the Old Dominion neighborhood in July 2015, after spending two years in Seoul, Korea with the U.S. military. With the exception of multiple overseas military tours, my wife and I have lived in Arlington since the late 1990s, including stops in Rosslyn, Crystal City, and Courthouse, before moving to the Old Dominion Civic Association area. We love the neighborhood community that Old Dominion provides, in addition to easy access to a broad range of historical and cultural activities throughout Virginia and DC. With two kids attending the Discovery Elementary school, we hope to spend the foreseeable future right here in the Old Dominion neighborhood.
I moved to Arlington in 2007 with my husband Mike, our three children and numerous pets. We both retired from military service that same year and decided to move from Maryland to reduce our commute and improve our quality of life. We also wanted a home with character, the best public schools we could find, and to be no more than 30 minutes from Mike’s parents and siblings in Springfield, Oakton and Sterling. We feel so fortunate to live in our 1922 FourSquare, our Old Dominion neighborhood, and Arlington!
