City of Seattle Seeks New Members to Serve on the Community Technology Advisory Board — Apply Now through November 30

The City of Seattle seeks volunteers to join the Community Technology Advisory Board (CTAB). The 10-member board and its committees help guide city strategies and investments in information and communications technology. 

CTAB members advise the Seattle Information Technology Department (Seattle IT), the Mayor, and City Council on a range of issues, including broadband, digital equity, mobile and web-based city services, privacy and surveillance, community engagement, small cell and 5G deployment, and access to technology for students, families, and underserved residents.

The City is looking for an inclusive board representative of our community. Board members come from various backgrounds and do not need to work in technology to contribute. We are currently looking to fill multiple positions. This a great opportunity to impact change directly with and learn more about government to help our community. You can learn more about CTAB at

The City of Seattle promotes race and social justice in the makeup and work of its board members and commissioners. We encourage multicultural members of all ages, gender identification, and abilities in our community to apply. 

Board members appointed by either the Mayor or City Council must meet the following requirements:

  • Must live or work in the City of Seattle
  • Be able to serve a two-year appointment, with the potential for another one-year term
  • Fulfill the time commitment of around five to ten hours per month, depending on the activity
  • Attend monthly meetings (evenings on the second Tuesday of the month)
  • Service to the board is expected to begin in January 2024
  • Members participate in at least one CTAB sub-committee
  • Applicants must not be employed by the City of Seattle

Applications are being accepted now through 5 p.m. on November 30, 2023.
