Navy Personnel Command Fleet Engagement Team to visit PacNorWest Sailors 

By Navy Personnel Command Public Affairs
MILLINGTON, Tenn. -- Representatives from Navy Personnel Command’s (NPC) fleet engagement team will visit bases in the Pacific Northwest Aug. 8 to 11, to meet with Sailors and discuss personnel policies and initiatives impacting the fleet.

“Fleet engagement visits benefit Sailors by allowing them to be best informed on the personnel programs that are important to them,” said Master Chief Quartermaster (SW/AW) Andy Millar, senior enlisted advisor for NPC’s enlisted distribution division. “This is an opportunity for Sailors to hear first-hand exactly from a detailing perspective how programs work and allows them to make informed career decisions.”

Representatives from the enlisted distribution division, enlisted personnel readiness and support division and enlisted community managers will conduct briefs at Naval Base Kitsap Bremerton, Naval Base Kitsap Bangor, Naval Air Station Whidbey Island and Naval Station Everett. Briefs will focus on Navy force shaping initiatives including Fleet Ride Perform-to-Serve (FR-PTS), Enlisted Retention Board, (ERB), enlisted  and officer community health and the distribution and detailing process.

“ERB is probably one the biggest things Sailors are concerned about right now, followed by FR-PTS,” said Millar, who has already met Sailors in Hawaii and Norfolk.
 The briefs are targeted for specific pay grades as follows:

Aug. 8, Naval Base Kitsap Bremerton
9:00 to 11:30 a.m. (Chiefs/Officers)
1:00 to 3:30 p.m. (E-6s and below)

Aug. 9, Naval Base Kitsap Bangor
8:00 to 10 a.m. (Chiefs/Officers)
10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (E-6s and below)

Aug. 10, Naval Air Station Whidbey Island
9:00 to 11:30 a.m. (Chiefs/Officers)
1:00 to 3:30 p.m. (E-6s and below)

Aug. 11, Naval Station Everett
9:00 to 11:30 a.m. (Chiefs/Officers)
1:00 to 3:30 p.m. (E-6s and below)

E-7 and above sessions include leadership briefs and detailing and distribution. E-6 and below briefs will feature information on force shaping, FR-PTS, ERB and Career Management System Interactive Detailing (CMS/ID) Detailer brief. The team will also conduct training for Navy Counselors and collateral duty career counselors.

“I certainly encourage Sailors to come out and attend one of our briefs and ask questions about matters that impact their career,” said Millar. “There are limited opportunities to speak directly with detailer, placement and community manager representatives.”
