Nearly 100 officer, NCO boards to meet in 2017

Nearly 100 boards will meet at Fort Knox, Kentucky in 2017 to select active and reserve officers and noncommissioned officers for promotion, command, special assignments and service school attendance.

The schedule prepared by the Army Selection Board Secretariat is based on a fiscal year timeline, which means it begins in October 2016 and ends in September 2017.

Most of the soldiers selected by these boards will be promoted, placed in special assignments or attend schools in the year following their selection.

As an exception, two cohorts of lieutenant colonels will be considered for battalion command by boards that meet in fiscal 2017.  The officers will assume command in 2018 and 2019.

Zones of consideration and other board details normally are released about three months in advance of the convening dates designated in the accompanying schedule.

The results of NCO selection boards normally are released several weeks after adjournment, while officer lists are released three to four months after adjournment. Depending on rank and component, many of the officer lists require Senate confirmation, a process that can take several weeks.
