Squadron, group command applications due April 18

JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO - RANDOLPH, Texas (AFNS) -- Eligible line officers interested in 2015 command opportunities must complete and submit senior rater endorsed statements of intent to the Air Force Personnel Center in time to meet the April 18 deadline, AFPC officials said.

Development teams from various Air Force specialties will convene between May and August 2014 to consider line eligible officers for projected squadron and deputy group command positions.

In addition to functional command opportunities, officers may also apply for recruiting, student, training or air base squadron command consideration.

While time on station and date eligible for return from overseas are not limiting eligibility factors, they should be considered in the nomination and selection process, said Joseph Marchino, AFPC line special assignments branch. In general, officers serving contiguous United States or overseas long tours are expected to have two years TOS prior to their projected departure date for command, or be in an otherwise must-move status, such as intermediate or senior developmental education graduates or an overseas short tour DEROS in calendar year 2015. Senior raters should consider nominating officers with less TOS for projected command vacancies at their current or already projected duty locations, or for deployed TDY command opportunities. Officers currently assigned to joint duty positions are eligible, but must be able to complete at least 24 months of a 36-month joint duty assignment tour, preferably prior to June 1, 2015, but no later than their projected departure date.

Grade criteria vary among the different specialties, so interested officers should visit their respective career field web pages on the AFPC myPers website.

DT panel results will be released in late September 2014. Officers selected for the command candidate lists are considered volunteers for worldwide opportunities, including extended deployment command opportunities.

A personnel services delivery memorandum with DT schedules, suspenses and guidance on communicating intentions on the Airmen Development Plan SOI is available on the myPers website at https://mypers.af.mil. Enter "Consolidated Line Squadron/Deputy Group Commander" or "PSDM 14-17" in the search window.
