History and Purpose
The Springfield Civic Association (SCA) is a non-partisan, non-sectarian, 501(c)4 non-profit volunteer organization established in 1953 to enhance the quality of life in Springfield by encouraging residents to be active in community affairs and by advocating for their interests and concerns through local government and other organizations.
To assist in accomplishing its purpose, SCA established the Springfield Community Educational Alliance (SCEA) as its educational division in 2006 as a tax-exempt 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to promoting civic awareness and responsibility through educational activities on civic participation.
With the growth in the greater Springfield area since then, SCA now represents residents in the central part of Springfield that encompasses over 2,400 homes and 800 apartments. SCA’s area is bounded by I-495 on the north (Beltway)/Railway, Old Keene Mill Road (SR 644) on the south, I-95 on the east, and Accotink Creek stream valley on the west.
Membership is open to all residents owning, renting, or leasing property within the association’s geographic boundaries.
Meetings are regularly held five times a year on the third Tuesday of September, November, January, March and May to present, discuss, and vote as needed on topics of community interest or concern. The President sets the agenda for these meetings and may call additional special meetings to address issues of major immediate concern.
