Who We Are

The Community Technology Advisory Board (CTAB) was established in 1995, and revised in 2015 under the Seattle Municipal Code, (Section 3.22.050, Ordinance 124736). The 2015  revision changed the scope and the name from the Citizens Telecommunications & Technology Advisory Board (CTTAB); this evolved out of the City's cable tv advisory board before 1995.  The Board is composed of 10 members - six appointed by the Mayor and four appointed by the Council.  Two members represent specific constituencies: education and public access to telecommunications. The remaining members serve at large. All serve staggered two-year terms. In addition, CTAB has a young adult "Get Engaged" Program representative, who serves a one-year term. The Get Engaged position is appointed by the Mayor, and is one of six appointments. The Board members have opted to share some contact information.  Use the Contact Us page for general questions or communications to the Board.
