Convening of the Fiscal Year 2019 Reserve Command Screening Board (RCSB) and Reserve Senior Leader Board (RSLB)
Marine Administrative Message 141/18 announces the convening dates for both the RCSB and the RSLB.
The board for Reserve Component (RC) lieutenant colonels will convene on Aug. 13, 2018. The board for RC colonels will convene on Aug. 20, 2018.
These boards will select RC officers for designated commands/Reserve Senior Leader (RSL) billets projected to be available between Oct. 1, 2018 and Sept. 30, 2019. RSL billets are not designated command billets, but they entail significant responsibility. Therefore, applicants applying for RSL billets are governed by the same competitive criteria and requirements for command.
Each board will select primaries for each available billet from the pool of eligible RC officer applicants. Additionally, the board will select a sufficient number of qualified alternates to meet manpower requirements that may arise if selected officers do not accept or subsequently vacate command during their tour. Upon completion of the board, the proposed slates and alternate lists will be forwarded to CMC for approval. Once approved, primary selectees will be announced via MARADMIN and the alternate list will be posted on the RAM-3 website.
The deadline for submitting an application is June 4, 2018, 2359 EST. Late submissions will not be accepted. The web-based, online application is the only method to apply.
