Results of the Army's first-ever nominative command sergeant major selection board will be released Feb. 5.
Soldiers selected by the board will serve as command sergeants major to one- and two-star general officer commanders.
The new selection process is designed to facilitate the development of senior NCO leaders whom the Army will groom to serve as command sergeants major and sergeants major for three- and four-star general officer commanders and senior executive service appointees.
Previously, the nominative process was an assignment and career management action not involving a selection board.
Senior NCOs identified by the board that met in mid-January will be placed on one of three nomination position referral lists for use in meeting command sergeant major requirements in fiscal 2014.
NCOs placed on the lists will be managed by the Sergeant Major Management Office, which in turn will work with selecting officials to appoint NCOs for assignment to nominative positions.
Once assigned, the NCOs will serve two-year tours as command sergeants major for brigadier general and major general commanders.
