Navy Personnel Command conducts numerous boards of many types throughout the year. Some concepts or procedures are common to all boards, others are quite different depending on the type of board convened.
Most of the information in this section will apply primarily to "Promotion" boards. Administrative and Screening boards are NOT promotion boards even though they may involve a person advancing in rank (a chief being selected for CWO for example).
Thus, what might apply to a Promotion board might NOT be true for a Screening or Administrative board and vice versa. Check the related page for a specific board or with the sponsor of that board if something is unclear or you have a question.
