MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) — Correspondence with statutory promotion selection boards and the associated continuation boards must now be submitted earlier due to changes contained in the fiscal year (FY) 2018 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA).

According to NAVADMINs 297/17, 296/17 and 284/17, correspondence is now due 10 calendar days prior to these boards convening. These messages come after the FY18 NDAA changed the deadline for correspondence – also known as letters to the board (LTB) – which effectively changed Sections 614 (for active officers) and 14106 (for reserve officers) of Title 10 U.S. Code.

“FY18’s NDAA has changed the deadline for officers desiring to communicate with from to their promotion selection board from the day prior to convening to no later than 10 days prior to convening,” said Capt. Martin Pompeo, director, Career Progression Division. “The first group impacted by this change will be the is active duty unrestricted and restricted line commanders who are eligible for the Active O6 Line Board scheduled to convene Jan. 17, 2018. The deadline for submitting correspondence to that board is 11:59 p.m. Central time on Jan. 7, 2018.”

For active-duty officers, continuation boards follow each active-duty promotion selection board. Officers are not required to submit an LTB but, if they desire to do so, the correspondence must be received by 11:59 p.m. Central time, 10 calendar days prior to the date their board is scheduled to convene. The schedule of FY-19 Navy active-duty promotion selection board convening dates:

* Active O6 Line Promotion Selection Board convenes Jan. 17, 2018. The Active O5 LDO Line Continuation Selection board follows this board.
* Active O6 Staff Corps Promotion Selection Board convenes Feb. 6, 2018. The Active O5 LDO Staff Corps Continuation Selection Board follows this board.

For reserve and full time support (FTS) officers, continuation boards do not apply.
