  3. Quotas! Get your quotas here! https://www.mynavyhr.navy.mil/Portals/55/Boards/Active Duty Enlisted/Documents/FY-22 AD/FY22 AD E7 CY250 QUOTAS.pdf?ver=nMdmKwBjcuexNpzyuVnmTA%3d%3d

  4. 2 answers to the questions above: If someone went through the trouble to track me down to ask me some questions about their record or general questions because they saw that I was a part of a previous board, I would NOT be upset in the least. If you go through the trouble and have the courage to hit me up, I'm here to help you out. Some folks here have sent me PMs and I gave them feedback on what they asked. My money is on Sep 10-15 for AD E7 quotas!

  5. First time up for active CPO and I've pretty much resigned myself to retiring as a FCPO. I've still had a good run and am enjoying my time regardless. God has been good to me with regards to my naval career. Can I ask what you did to try and stand out? What do you think prevented your selection?

  6. Hey All Just wanted to say I've been around this forum lurking for a long time. at 21.5 yrs in the Navy (6 months from Reserve HYT) 14.5 of those as a FCPO and 12 yrs board eligible. I was finally selected on my last try. Here is the advice i will give you. 10 things to help you get selected. 1. Never give up! Even after hearing non-select 11 times I still kept striving not just for myself, but for my sailors. Its not always about us individually its about our people! 2. Document everything - Community involvement ( put in for MOVSM if you are eligible, I just got my 3rd recently), Work efforts (take notes all year of accomplishments for eval bullets, have too much rather than not enough) 3. Mentoring - have that in your eval, especially if mentoring fellow FCPO's. 4. Education - any kind, in rate, formal etc. Get it and document it. 5. Lead 360 trainings, EXW/IW/SW/AW etc trainings. Get involved in the command as well as your mess. Don't just show up, participate and document. 6. LPO / CCC type positions. Shoot for them strive to do well in those positions. Any command level impacting collateral is huge! But dont just have the title show improvements in the programs and efforts to your job, its one thing to be an LPO or CCC its another to really do the job. 7. Recognize your sailors - write and submit SOQ/JSOQ/SOY/JSOY packages and get your people recognized. Them doing well means your doing well! 8. FIX YOUR RECORD - Fine tooth comb, check OMPF and PSR - nothing else matters. If its missing fix it, if not, include in your package. I had 12 enclosures this year. I was busy, but also just couldn't get my record right in certain instances. Too many isn't a thing if its important to show your accomplishments. 9.Evals - PSR review and check for gaps. I went back and fixed gaps from 2005 every little bit matters even if its a day gap, fix it. Its as simple as a letter to PERs you can do you self. If you dont know how ask around. Also RSCA is the key - you can be a MP sailor border line EP as long as your above RSCA that is what matters, fight for your eval. Pay attention to it. Its the most important thing in your record. 10. Board packages - I had 2 master chief's, 2 senior chief's, 4 chief's and a YN1 who was a board recorder all review my record and package. More eyes are better than less! everyone will have opinions but find a balance get the important things noted and triple check everything! That's my advice take it for what its worth. I help many sailors before me get selected. Cheers and congrats to my fellow selectees. And keep pushing hard to the FCPO's out there who got the N or are just getting to this point in their career. Cheers, ITC(Sel) Rice

  12. Good Luck to all the AD Board eligibles that are still waiting on the results. I noticed that the forum has been a little inactive lately. Lets get this thing going….anyone have any topics to discuss? Anyone think the quotas will release sometime tomorrow?

  13. So they have been releasing quotas when the board adjourns. The NAVADMIN said the board is supposed to adjourn around 9/9/2021. I would expect it probably the next day, but we will see!

  14. Thought I had a solid shot at YNC (Reserve) this cycle, but the competition must have been extremely fierce. Congrats to those who made it! It's definitely earned. This was my fourth time up and I really worked hard for it this time; I'd love some input from anybody who's made YNC about what I may be able to improve for next time(s). For me: 4 EPs and an MP in the last 5 years, with documented mentorship, training lead, Admin LPO, etc. Corrections to record made, with every day now accounted for. DMSM from JSOC (mob) and JSCM from STRATCOM (IDT unit), MOVSM for work at a navy yard museum. Two bachelors degrees (transcripts in OMPF) and a merchant marine deck officer license (mentioned in LTB). Two warfare qualifications (IW/EXW). PPME and JPME 1, documented on evals. No NJP or PFA fails. Against me: Only one AT in the last five years (mobilized one year, two ran out of funding, then COVID, explained in LTB. PIM from this year's AT submitted with LTB) A P eval from regular drill unit in 2018 after returning from mobilization (New CO, only present at unit for half the year, couldn't compete with IDC FCPOs performing mission month after month. Eval explained that it was a factor of unavailability, but who knows how that was interpreted). NAM EOT from a unit I was with for more than five years (award went through NOSC CO who didn't like the lack of recent ATs, even though it was because of their own budget restrictions). Confusing regular MP from commissioned UMUIC (Seabee) with concurrent EP from TRUIC (STRATCOM). UMUIC eval is good but not outstanding, and based exclusively on achievements reported at TRUIC - I never drilled with the Seabees so that eval, which talks about me as a Seabee, is kinda weird. Explained in LTB, maybe not well enough. Three of my four EPs are detach 1 of 1 evals. Only the one regular EP lists a breakout (#2 of 8). My best guess is that despite demonstrated superior performance, with that P and only one breakout, it's not as sustained superior as the YN1s who were chosen. I'd love to hear any other thoughts. My biggest concern is that, with my civilian job now keeping me offshore six months a year, I'll have a hard time performing in leadership roles versus people who can be there every drill weekend. I'll need to get creative to continue demonstrating the leadership qualities a board is looking for without being an absentee LPO.

  23. The board members MUST follow what is put out in the convening order and precepts. Going outside of that compromises the board. And you are correct, the days are long and the pace is swift - its is by far easier to select the best fully qualified if you don't try to introduce subjective extraneous data.

  24. Yeah I had read it too, but I mentioned it as a slippery slope kind of deal. Like you said, could they possibly make the leap in the future to "screen" people via social media. I understand it doesn't apply to those things now, but the concept is there for future generations. Real question: the debate at my command came up, is it good form to reach out to a board member (after the list comes out) and ask for advice on your record? I said that I do not see how it could hurt, but don't go asking "Why not me?" and instead ask them for honest advice on what you are lacking as an competitive member.

  25. Tony, I put the link here but the story came out months ago about the pentagon pushing for a "social media monitoring for extremism and extremism ideologies". Hope it helps! https://www.forbes.com/sites/petersuciu/2021/05/21/the-pentagon-could-soon-monitor-military-personnels-social-media/?sh=fd7667d67bd5

  26. It would not make sense, because the question would be why would their social media impact their selection? And I would assume they are under some form of communications blackout, they would have to be to ensure the board does accidently release results.

  27. While the board is being convened. Do you believe board members are using social media platforms to further “peek” at candidates? Or might fight for someone because they know or heard of him/her. Im sure they’re not supposed to but just saying.

  28. Congratulations to those selected. Now I saw the question with AD quotas but how about the results for AD. I know there is a letter saying Oct. But trend is a month after reserve results so normal trend or letter. What does everyone think

  30. The AD quotas won't be released until after the board finishes. The membership lists are always posted on MyNavy HR after the board finishes as well. https://www.mynavyhr.navy.mil/Career-Management/Boards/Reserve-Enlisted/CPO-Selection-Boards/

  31. To me and I'm no expert... sounds like they ignored your 1 of 1 EP's because those are not competitive evals. They will look at your evals ranked against others. So you mentioned 1... they will go back past 5 years if they have to find those evals. what did they look like? as a mobing reservist evals become even more important and tricky. You need to make sure they are good to go. and the change with Truic's doing evals for cross assigned members should help make this all easier as well. If you would like to reach out id be happy to take a look and see what you got going on. V/R, ITC(SEL)

  38. So I can't seem to find any black and white on this but from my witness and understanding of previous "holds", a selectee in a "hold" status will still participate through the season, but just will not pin on until that member's case has been resolved with NPC. Been a couple years since I've experienced Holds, so not sure if that aspect of it has changed or not.

  41. If you ask ten people about recommendation letters, you'll get ten different opinions about it, but I'll share mine anyway. Look for recommendation letters from previous CO's or someone who has personally observed your performance. Recommendation letters from flag officers are worth your time as well. The board will read whatever letters you submit, but it needs to be relevant and not some O-6 you just happen bump shoulders with or doesn't have first hand knowledge of your potential to perform as an officer. For what it's worth, I submitted a recommendation letter last year from a retired CDR CO of mine from two commands ago. I was selected for 7821 CWO...did the letter help? Who knows.

  42. If someone receives a “Hold” status during CPO results do they start the season with the rest of the selects or have to wait till that Hold is officially changed to selected?

  44. Lots! Bad: 1. Sending in certificates that don't have names on them. 2. Sending in LTBs past the due date. 3. Not signing your LTB. 4. Terrible quality products. Don't use your nokia cell phone camera to "scan" a document into your LTB. The images are poor and it's just a sloppy/lazy product to submit for YOUR PROMOTION BOARD. 5. Sending in unnecessary documents. Look at your PDS/PSR. If "MTS" is listed in your PDS, there is really no need to send in the certificate from 2013........... 6. Not addressing odd things in your record... If you broke sea/shore rotation, tell the board member WHY! If there is something that is funky, ELABORATE for the person reviewing your record. "I didn't follow sea/shore rotation because of availability of billets and I included an email from my detailer stating he/she is sending me back to back shore against my desires". Don't leave it up to the board members to guess why something looks weird. 7. MTS. If you were at a training command that did not have/offer an MTS program, address that in your LTB!!! 8. EVAL GAPS!! FIX THESE TODAY. If your November 2020 eval isn't in your record, kiss your chances goodbye. This also includes smaller gaps throughout your PSR. 9. A 35 page LTB. Members only have so much time to review your record, the more time they are reviewing your LTB is less time they have to review your evals. My PERSONAL RECOMMENDATION is less than 10 enclosures, but of course, it's YOUR LTB. Other items: 1. Do your PPME/SEJPME. ESPECIALLY if you do not have a college degree. 2. The Selection Board brief on MyNavy HR is accurate. If your interested on the actual process, review that powerpoint. 3. Make sure your PSR/PDS/OMPF are accurate. Some people, believe it or not, have other peoples evals/awards/NJPs in their record. Don't let that happen to you. Review your stuff, especially if you are eligible for advancement. Career Summary: So if you ask 100 board members, 50 of them will like them, 50 of them won't. My PERSONAL recommendation..let your record speak for itself and don't submit one. If you are going to submit one, only include data from your current paygrade or the past 5 years (which ever is greater). If we are making Chief Petty Officers, I could care less if you were the honor grad in A-school. Hope that helps a little!
