Navy Personnel Command's Fleet Engagement Team to Visit San Diego, USA

Navy Personnel Command’s (NPC) fleet engagement team is scheduled to meet with Sailors, families and leadership to discuss programs and initiatives affecting the career of 21st Century Sailors July 24-26 in San Diego.

“The visit is intended to help Sailors and command leadership understand current manpower issues and programs, as well as promote the professional and personal development of our Sailors,” said Capt. Steven Holmes, director, community management branch, Bureau of Naval Personnel.

The briefs will provide background on Navy force shaping initiatives and upcoming command and Sailor actions. In a leadership-only session following the all-hands briefs, the team will discuss efforts to address future manning issues in more detail.

Officer topics include the selected early retirement board, the lateral transfer board, and the probationary officer continuation and designation board. Enlisted topics include Fleet Ride-Perform to Serve, enlisted community health and detailing and distribution.

The fleet engagement team is composed of representatives from the NPC enlisted distribution division, officer and enlisted community management division and career management department. They will conduct all-hands briefs at Naval Base Coronado July 24, Naval Base San Diego July 25, and Naval Base Point Loma July 26.

All Sailors, spouses, career counselors and command leadership teams are encouraged to attend. Sailors should contact their command career counselor for local briefing times and locations.
