You can make a difference in our community by applying to fill the vacancy on the Technology Advisory Board (TAB). All residents of Wake Forest and its extraterritorial jurisdiction (ETJ) are eligible to apply.

The purpose of the TAB is to advise the Town in all areas related to technology. It also endeavors to spur economic development through technological growth by collaborating with business, industry, non-profits, public institutions and citizens.

The online application is available on the Town’s website at www.wakeforestnc.gov/advisory-boards/advisory-board-application. Anyone without computer access is invited to complete the application by using the computer kiosks in the lobby of Wake Forest Town Hall, 301 S. Brooks St. Hard copies are also available upon request by contacting Executive Assistant Cathi Pope at 919-435-9467 or cpope@wakeforestnc.gov.  

Completed applications must be received no later than 5 p.m. Friday, June 21.

Applicants will be expected to attend the next scheduled TAB meeting on Monday, June 24, to introduce themselves and discuss why they wish to serve. The board will convene at 6:30 p.m. in the Wake Forest Town Hall Ground Floor Meeting Room, 301 S. Brooks St. The room is most easily accessed via the building’s Taylor Street entrance.

Following the interviews on June 24, the TAB will review its slate of candidates before submitting its recommendation to the Board of Commissioners (BOC). The Board will announce the new appointment during its regular monthly meeting on Tuesday, July 16.

The selected applicant will fill the vacated seat and their term will commence immediately.

The Town’s advisory boards were established to give citizens input into what happens in the community and to advise the BOC on matters that affect citizens and their Town government. For more information, contact Executive Assistant Cathi Pope at 919-435-9467 or cpope@wakeforestnc.gov.
