Air Force personnel officials have a new video to shed light on the inner workings of senior enlisted promotion boards. A copy, titled “How Senior NCOs Are Promoted to Senior and Chief,” will be distributed to each Air Force installation public affairs office, military personnel flight, command chief master sergeant, as well as to all noncommissioned officer academies and the Senior NCO Academy. The video provides an insider’s view of boardroom activity, including how records are scored and what board members actually do when evaluating candidates for promotion. The video explains the process, from the way board members are chosen to sit on selection boards, to how board members affect the final promotion list. The video should be available by early September, says the Air Force. Members seeking more information should contact their local MPF.
