In order to ensure our board membership requirements are met, immediate

encouraged to seek out the best board member candidates within your purview
and provide those names to the Membership Branch Head, copying the Naval
Personnel Command (NPC) Force Master Chief (FORCM).

members board service; however, the CMC/COB may not disclose their own
service on a board to anyone other than the CO or next echelon ISIC. Failure
to adhere to this policy is a direct violation of the Uniform Code of

administrative or disciplinary action by DCNP.
