7.  The signed application must be endorsed by the members commanding officer 
(CO) and forwarded directly to their cognizant immediate superior in 
charge/type command (ISIC/TYCOM) command master chief (CMC).  The ISIC/TYCOM 
CMC 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 ISIC/TYCOM CMC, 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 
for which the applicant is submitting.  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 CMC, CO, 
or those of your ISIC/TYCOM CMC.  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 ISIC/TYCOM CMC, 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 ISIC/TYCOM CMC, 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.
