This message solicits nominations in support of a Chief of Naval Operations Strategic Studies Group (CNO SSG) request to select a master chief petty officer with expertise discussed in paragraphs 4 and 5 as a CNO SSG director fellow. Nominations are due to CMDCM Jeffery Garrison, MCPON EA, no later than (NLT) 4 September 2015. 2. Background: CNO SSG is located in Newport, RI. Working for and reporting only to the CNO, the sole mission of CNO SSG is the generation of revolutionary operating and warfighting concepts for the future Navy. The CNO SSG experience is professionally rewarding, providing the opportunity to interact closely with other CNO SSG members, world-class experts, and a multitude of Navy, Department of Defense, and civilian leaders. 3. The master chief does not function as a senior enlisted advisor or command master chief. Rather, the master chief is one of approximately 35 handpicked, top-quality professionals (O-2s to O-7s; GS-12s to GS-15s) from a wide variety of backgrounds that work as full partners and peers together addressing the CNOs theme. Selection is not tied to the specific CNO theme or a specific technical/professional background. Additional information about the CNO SSG is available on the U. S. Naval War College website at http://www.usnwc.edu/cnossg. 4. Candidates need to be able to think from a variety of perspectives, to be willing and capable of challenging assumptions, and to be able to bring forth new, unconventional ideas. Candidates will be reviewed based on their demonstrated performance, and potential to innovate on a scale that contributes to meeting a CNO-level, Navy-wide challenge. 5. Eligibility: While ratings CTM, CTN, CTT, ET, IS, and IT may be most useful due to technical dimensions of SSG work, any top performing active duty and reserve component master chief is eligible for nomination. Individuals nominated should also have demonstrated sustained superior performance, a high degree of initiative, demonstrated innovative thought, outstanding military appearance and exemplary military and professional conduct. Nominees should also: a. Be upwardly mobile with a strong potential for future service as a command, force, and fleet master chief; b. Shall not reach high year tenure limits before November 2019; c. Be able to function as a colleague in one or more concept teams; d. At a minimum hold a secret clearance; however, TS/SCI eligibility is preferred; and e. Be within 10 months of normal transfer window. Commands may nominate other qualified master chiefs, but will not receive personnel relief during SSG tenure. 6. E-mail packages in a pdf format to CMDCM Garrison NLT 28 August 2015. Packages must include: a. Candidates application letter (two pages) explaining why they desire to serve with the CNO SSG, explaining what makes them a unique candidate, name/rank, and command name and contact information (commanding officers (CO) name, telephone and e-mail address). Enclosures to the application letter should include: (1) Promotion history; (2) Active-duty assignments (with inclusive dates); (3) Military awards (personal, service, campaign); (4) Significant accomplishments in bulletized format emphasizing member's technical expertise and innovation; (5) Educational background (include degree certificates, certifications, training courses that highlight technical expertise and unique qualifications); (6) Copy of nominee's performance summary report; (7) Copies of nominee's last three evaluations; and (8) Short biography (one page). b.
