FY17 CAPT Promotion Opportunity 70%!!!

Posted on

Here are the convening order and the membership for the O6 boards that just concluded. Of note in the convening order:

-The promotion opportunity was 70%, which is WAY BETTER than last year when it was 50%! This is the highest it has been since FY12 when it was 80%.

-As expected, the order directed the board to equally consider above-zone and in-zone officers.

-The “board shall identify exceptional officers from below the zone and consider selecting them…” We’ll have to wait and see if any below-zone were selected, but this is why it always pays to have a board-ready record. The below-zone selection number was not to exceed 10% of the selections.

    Thanks for the information Joel. Your insight into the board and promotion process is a godsend.

    CDR. I thought we were getting rid of the “BZ, IZ, and AZ” stamps so how did the board determine equal consideration of IZ and AZ officers?

      All of the AZ and IZ were lumped together and looked at as one group, and they didn’t have the AZ stamps. In other words, they were all equal.
