Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs
MILLINGTON, Tenn. -- Navy Personnel Command (NPC) has rescheduled the 2010 boards after a flash flood May 1 here caused delays, according to NAVADMIN 179/10.
Reconvening the senior chief board, which was in progress when the deluge hit, was a high priority according to Capt. Leo Falardeau, NPC’s director of career progression. The E8 board is slated to reconvene June 14.
“Even as the flood waters rose, we knew the E-8 board would have to be reconstituted as soon as our systems came back up,” he said. Promotions in senior enlisted grades as well as the chief induction period are tied to this board.
Now that NPC is recovering and the information technology systems that support selection boards are back online, the board spaces in Millington are buzzing with activity. “Luck was with us. Flood waters did not enter the selection board areas,” Falardeau said. “We have increased the board membership numbers to ensure we make up for the lost days.”
The selection board revised schedule for 2010 is now posted on www.npc.navy.mil.
