MILLINGTON, Tenn. (NNS) -- Results from the Fiscal Year (FY) 13 Active Duty E7 Board were released July 31, and show Navy's force management initiatives are having positive effects.

Advancement opportunity for the FY13 board increased to 23.96 percent, nearly 6 percent more than FY12 as approximately 4,400 Sailors were selected from a pool nearly 19,000 candidates.

Notable opportunity this cycle included Logistics Specialist (Submarine) (LS grp 1) with 100 percent opportunity and 22 quotas. Also showing strong opportunity was Yeoman (Submarine) (YN Grp 1) at 55.77 percent and 29 quotas from 33.93 with 19 quotas in FY12.

"While it is a high point for those Sailors selected for chief petty officer, the active and Reserve board's typically review records of more than 19,000 first class petty officers, which means a lot of Sailors will not be selected, and that is very disappointing to some Sailors," said Navy Personnel Command Force Master Chief (AW/SW/NAC) Jon Port. "The chain of command must communicate with those Sailors who did not get selected."

According to Port, command leadership should assist Sailors not selected by conducting a career development board (CDB). A CDB provides Sailors the opportunity to discuss their career progression, the health of their rating, and their short and long-term goals for the future.

"If we are straightforward yet supportive with our Sailors, they stand a much greater chance of following the advice given by their chain of command and ultimately attaining that next pay grade," he said.

NPC conducts almost 150 promotion and selection boards annually. Each board receives the official military records of personnel deemed eligible for consideration.
