About MHCA

The MHCA is an organization of residents/volunteers who work together to maintain and improve the quality of life in our neighborhood, McLean Hamlet. The Association was founded in 1989, and has over the years come to be regarded with great respect by local organizations.

Membership is $100/year. This money helps maintain the beautiful and engaged community that has made the Hamlet one of the most desirable neighborhoods in Northern Virginia for decades. That includes newsletters, community directory, events (including a fall picnic, a winter festival of lights and a spring yard sale), and maintenance of common spaces. You can join and/or pay your annual dues here.

The association also advocates before local and state officials on issues affecting the Hamlet, such as noise pollution, transportation (including speeding), reliability of electric power, the development of Tysons, metro service, and many other issues. We also collaborate closely with the Lewinsville Coalition and the McLean Citizens Association.

A network of Block Captains engages neighbors, communicates information from the MHCA, and relays feedback / needs of neighbors to the MHCA.

MHCA is governed via bylaws.

The Board

12 board members run the association and our day-to-day activities. Board members are elected for 3 year terms, and are staggered in to ensure continuity. Our McLean Hamlet Board of Directors usually meets on the first Monday of each month.
