Your Air Force

Here’s when your promotion board is going to meet next year

The Air Force Personnel Center on Aug. 29 posted the selection board schedule for 2019, including the dates for senior non-commissioned officer evaluation and supplemental boards and officer selection boards.

AFPC said the Air Force’s Selection Board Secretariat holds about 100 boards annually. In addition to the boards listed below, the secretariat also conducts general officer promotion and federal recognition boards, and force management boards.

“The selection board process is governed by law and Air Force policy,” the selection board web page says. “It’s a fair and equitable process with many safeguards to ensure high standards are maintained. Once a selection board convenes, the board members work directly for the Secretary of the Air Force and take an oath to perform the duties without prejudice or partiality.”

AFPC said last year, when it announced the 2018 selection board, that the timing of officer boards could change if the number of officers in each year group changes. That way, the Air Force can ensure it doesn’t promote more airmen than they’re required to have in each rank, and make sure all officers in year groups under consideration have the requisite three years time-in-grade.
