8. Do not use request chits and do not forward applications through your

9. Board membership will be held in the strictest confidence. Once an

a policy of non-disclosure. Do not discuss applications or selection, if
chosen, to serve on a board with anyone other than the CO, reporting senior,
CMC, chief of the boat, cognizant FORCM/FLTCM, or board support personnel at
NPC. It is appropriate for a CMC to be told by a member in the 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).
