Air Force Master Sergeant promotion board rescheduled due to COVID-19 restrictions

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) -- The Air Force Master Sergeant (20E7) promotion board, originally set to convene at Joint Base San Antonio-Randolph March 23, is rescheduled to ensure personal health and safety concerns associated with the coronavirus disease 2019, or COVID-19, can be maintained.

The 20E7 board is now scheduled to convene the first week of June, with a public promotion release projected for the end of July. The delay does not impact the currently planned first “sew-on” increment, which remains scheduled for August 1.

“We realize the importance and impact promotion boards have on Airmen’s careers, but for health and safety it’s important we make these prudent adjustments at this time,” said Maj. Gen. Andrew J. Toth, Air Force’s Personnel Center commander. “Given the importance of promotion boards, we are working on a number of process adjustments and facility mitigations allowing us to hold future boards while complying with health and safety guidelines. Unfortunately, we were unable to get those measures in place for the 20E7 board, which is the largest board we conduct. This is a rapidly-changing situation and we’re constantly coordinating with Headquarters Air Force to take care of our Airmen and their families the best way possible.”

AFPC will closely monitor record updates for the 20E7 promotion cycle.

At this time, plans for modifications are in place allowing all other promotion boards to continue as scheduled.
