Advisory Boards

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:

  • The Board of Commissioners makes appointments on the first Monday of each month.
  • Candidate applications are due 3 weeks prior to the first Monday meeting of each month.
  • Apply online for an open seat, and we'll notify you if you're appointed.
  • All applications are public records.
  • Applications remain active for one year. If you aren't appointed the first time, your application will automatically be resubmitted for any new openings until it expires.
  • Members must attend at least 75% of meetings.
  • The schedule for openings on boards and commissions may change. Check the Openings by Month page for the latest listings.
