Materiel leader, squadron command candidate board meets in July

Eligible acquisition officers will be considered for leadership opportunities when the materiel leader and commander selection board convenes July 29, Air Force Personnel Center officials said.

“Commanders play a critical role in developing mission accomplishment, and in developing and growing future leaders, said Major James Norman, AFPC acquisition officer assignments. “The selection team will be looking for characteristics and traits that indicate leadership ability and potential.”

Candidates must meet general eligibility and career field-specific criteria, and must be lieutenant colonels with an April 1, 2010 or later date of rank, lieutenant colonel-selects, or majors with an Aug. 31, 2009 or earlier date of rank. Non-core officers may apply but must have 24 months experience in and meet education requirements for the acquisition career field.

“Non-core officers must get a release from their core career field assignment team before they apply, though, so candidates should act expeditiously to ensure they have time to complete and coordinate their statement of intent,” said Norman.

For a complete eligibility requirements and application instructions, go to the myPers website at https://mypers.af.mil, and enter “61/62/63” for materiel leader and squadron commander information. For more information about other personnel issues, visit myPers.
