(CO) and forwarded directly to their cognizant force/fleet master chief
(FORCM/FLTCM). The FORCM/FLTCM will forward endorsed applications to PERS-
805 via e-mail at pers- firstname.lastname@example.org or will return the endorsed
applications to the member for submission. In circumstances where the
applicant is assigned to a joint command or otherwise does not have a

senior enlisted leader (SEL), provided the SEL is not eligible for
advancement on the board for which the applicant is submitting. If you are
unsure of your circumstance, please contact PERS-805.
8. Do not use request chits and do not forward applications through your
commands administrative support personnel, including those of the command
master chief (CMC), CO or those of your FORCM/FLTCM.
This will compromise board membership and invalidate your application.
Applications go directly to the CMC. Forms received from, or routed through,

in paragraph 7 above, will not be considered.
9. Board membership will be held in the strictest confidence. Once you

Chief of Navy Personnel (DCNP). Do not discuss applications or selection, if
chosen to serve on a board, with anyone other than the CO, reporting senior,
CMC, chief of the boat, cognizant FORCM/FLTCM or board support personnel at
NPC. It is appropriate for a member to advise their CMC of their pending
board service. However, the CMC may not disclose their own service on a
board to anyone other than the CO. Failure to adhere to this policy is a
direct violation of the Uniform Code of Military Justice and will result in
removal from the board and possible administrative or disciplinary action by
10. Careful consideration should be given to a nominees application and
availability to serve as a selection board member.
CO concurrence is required. If the CO initiates or becomes aware of an
investigation after the initial nomination is submitted, notify the points of
contact below immediately. COs, CMCs and applicants should understand that
once selected, the member is under official orders to the board and requests
for removal from board duties will not be granted except in extreme cases as
specified in reference (a).
