6.  The application form (NAVPERS 1400/2) can be downloaded from the NPC web 
site at http://www.public.navy.mil/bupers-
npc/reference/forms/Pages/default.aspx

7.  The signed application must be endorsed by the members commanding officer 
(CO) and forwarded directly to their cognizant force/fleet master chief 
(FORCM/FLTCM).  The FORCM/FLTCM will forward endorsed applications to Mr. 
Donald Marshall via e-mail at donald.p.marshall(at)navy.mil or will return 
the endorsed applications to the member so they send it personally.  In rare 
circumstances where the applicant does not have or is assigned to a joint 
command without a FORCM/FLTCM, the application should be sent to Mr. Marshall 
by the commands senior enlisted leader (SEL), provided the SEL is not 
eligible for advancement on the board the applicant is submitting for.  If 
you are unsure of your circumstance please contact Mr. Marshall.

8.  Do not use request chits and do not forward applications through your 
commands administrative support personnel, including those of your command 
master chief (CMC), CO or those of your FORCM/FLTCM. This will compromise 
board membership and invalidate your application. Your application needs to 
go directly to your CMC. Forms received from or routed through individuals 
other than the applicant or their FORCM/FLTCM, except as specified in 
paragraph 7 above, will not be considered.

9.  Board membership must be held in the strictest of confidence. Once you 
submit an application, Commander, Navy Personnel Command (CNPC) has ordered a 
policy of non-disclosure.  Do not discuss your application or your selection, 
if chosen, to serve on a board with anyone other than your CO, reporting 
senior, CMC, chief of the boat if applicable, cognizant FORCM/FLTCM, or board 
support personnel at NPC.   It is appropriate for a CMC to be told by a 
member in their command of that members 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.  It will result in removal from the board and possible 
administrative or disciplinary action by CNPC.

10.  Careful consideration should be given to a nominees availability to 
serve as a selection board member.  CO concurrence for the nominee to 
participate on a board is required.  COs, CMCs, and the applicant 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).

11.  Point of contact is Mr. Donald Marshall at (901) 874-3223/DSN 882 or via 
e-mail at donald.p.marshall(at)navy.mil

12.  This NAVADMIN is canceled for record purposes on 30 September 2016.
