​Citizen Advisory Boards and Commissions

The Board of Commissioners relies on volunteers to meet a crucial need for Wake County. Our many volunteers serve as our eyes and ears in the community, and we value the advice they bring back to us.

About applying for a board or commission:

  • Appointments are made to various boards monthly. 
  • You will be notified if appointed.
  • If you are not initially appointed to a board for which you have applied, your application will be resubmitted automatically until such time that you are appointed, or your application expires. Applications expire after one year.
  • When applying for a Wake County Board or Commission, your application is considered a public record.
  • There is a 75% attendance requirement for all advisory board members that must be adhered to in order to maintain membership.
  • Please be aware that the Appointments By Month Schedule is subject to change.
  • For more information, email leslie.rudd@wakegov.com.

NOTE: The online application service is temporarily unavailable. We are currently performing scheduled upgrades.

Regular service will resume Tuesday, November 3, 2015.

Thank you for your patience.
