I had a mental nightmare about redoing them.  If the date matters, only once is good.

Did you get responds from the Master Chief? I contacted all three ITCMs myself, but I didn't get any response back from them. If you got the response, how did you contacted them?

Just a heads up, if you are not doing so, try emailing them individually and not as a group. Group emails appear more impersonal.

I emailed them as individuals like tony said, so far only one responded. But less than 24 hours later. Now I'm nervous to see what she says. 

 

What at she did say before I sent my file was; strive to beat COs average, documented 365 participation, PPME and  SEJPME.

Thanks @CPO_Pride247  I appreciate that. Hopefully my holding item is my evals and nothing else that I cannot control or change.

Since I failed to make the board, I started early to get ready for next board, but when I was talking to my chiefs here in Korea, one big reason that I didn't make the board was my evaluation write up. I was able to fix this issues on my last evaluation and for my transfer evaluation, but if you could give me an advice on my evaluation is greatly appreciated.

Block 44 Community Involvement: Teen Challenge

Block 44: Awarded Security + Certification, NEC 2791 and Korean Service Medal

16NOV12-15NOV13 (3.86 EP)

Block 44 USMAP Certification for Computer Operator, VOL Haesimwon Orphanage monthly birthday party

Block 44: Awarded: Defense Meritorious Service Medal, Selected as 3rd QTR SSOQ and completed BIOL 101 and SEJPME I course.

First of all sorry for the long thread, and thank you for your understanding. Any advice will be greatly appreciated. Other than first 2 evaluation I was in Joint/Flag duty and I was only one evaluated by Army O6 and other than soft break out I was one of one. For Frocking Evaluation I was 2 of 2. Again thank you very much for your help and any advice will be greatly appreciated. Evaluation.docx

Just as a reminder. Now is a great time to work on stuff to put on your eval. and think about what to include in your letter to the board. However, don't let studying slip into the background. You can be the greatest sailor in the world. But, it does nothing to help you if you don't make board to begin with. Studying benefits you not only with the exam, but day to day operations now and after you make it.

Make sure you download your rating subtopics on NKO too.  They are right next to your BIBs.  They provide the Topics/enabling objectives of your rating exam.

Going into the FY18 Board with a Welcome Aboard "P" (5 months). How does the Board view that? Previous 5 years a variation of MP/EP and LPO on all, from shift to Dept. any insight will be great. Trying to make the "3rd times a charm."

Most of the senior personnel have said previously that the board will acknowledge it as a normal progression.

You will be fine. I got the same "P" you speak of the year I was selected coming to a new command. The important thing is how the EVAL was written. How do you know you got a P already? Aren't EVALs for FCPO in November? Did someone tell you how the rankings went? Don't sweat a P only being at a new command for only 5 months. The board sees it and knows how commands are with EVALs and newly reported Sailors.

I put in for MP, we'll see how rankings go but just wanted a perspective from the khakis on that "p" possibility.

Didn't feel like making a new thread for this, but I just got resolution on my Hold status today and I made it. Thank you to the people who reached out with advice on this. Much thanks.

So I haven't been on the site in awhile just focusing on my Sailors and work. Working on my MTS  and collateral. But I wanted to ask did any one else have their CDB yet for not making Chief? I know we didn't have it where I'm at, I would've thought we would have had them by now, not sure as this was my first time. Also, I'm at a fairly mid size command where we have between 80-100 or more FCPO's. We had to have our evaluations in to the COC by middle of August. I don't like that we turn our evals in so early because if we do pick up a collateral duty or do more volunteer work, or whatever it is not on our eval. I know for certain collaterals you receive a designation or for volunteer service LOA/MOVSM but not other things. I know this is done because of ranking boards and having to go through, senior and master chiefs, and our CO leaving soon as well.

Oh I also, if any one has an example of designation letters used for the CPO365 Program, if you could attach or PM me that would be great. When I do have my CDB, I want to bring up having a CPO and a FCPO as CPO365 Training and PT Coordinator. Currently, we just have CPO's and also the designation letter will help for the board. As well as if they do decide to implement having a FCPO, it may not be on someone's evaluation in time.

We did the CDB the same day results came out, but we are a small command.

I recently checked into my command and i got debriefed by the CO who sat on my board. He told me i had everything I needed, MOVSM, degree, good evals, just a good record. He said what hurt me was my conversion from OS to PS. He said the board felt like i needed to be a PS1 longer cuz i only been one for 4 years (3 PS evals) but if i was a YN i would have made it. He said just sustain (sustained superior performance) and mentioned that quotas were low and it was hard to take records out and he remembered mine because i was a PG.  He told me tko eep it up, go for UPC and other collaterals and be active in CPO 365 and document involvement on the eval. I put in a request chit already for UPC, got that info from this forum, thanks everyone. Keep charging and making sailors and yourself better!

I had a welcome aboard P with 110 days on-board and was selected this year. As others have stated what was written in your previous evals along with your most recent. You're leadership resulted in x contributing to x for the command. Everything we do needs to have a cause and effect otherwise it means nothing but words on a piece of paper. Get out and get command collateral's or assistant to them if your command requires you to be a Chief to hold those positions. Also I've read in other posts and was discussed in training's I've had. If you didn't get a qual or certifications when you had the opportunity explain that in your LTB. It's your method to communicate to the board, express the reasons or circumstances as to why you were unable to achieve those milestones. And last keep your heads up if you don't get selected. Keep pushing to better your sailors, as their success will make writing your eval with more MEAT vice FLUFF that board members see right through easier.

That's hard to take if I were you 4 years in your rate is not enough to get promoted. They promote fully and best qualified so being in a rate over a period of time is factored in. Did you ask your CO the required time in rate you needed to be selected.

He told me to keep doing what I am doing as a PS and factor Sustained Superior Performance. It definitely is hard to take but he said PS's that have been a PS 12 years and performed hurt me because I had so little time in rate. So doing the job longer and having so little quotas pushed me to the non-select pile.

Could you repost this in the CPO365 thread? There may be benefits in getting an active CPO365 thread going permanently and this post fits it perfectly.
