17 Sept 2018 IWC DCO Board

ALCON,

This is when the next IWC DCO Board is taking place. Applications due 24 August.

IWC DCO will be split into two boards with the next one taking place March 2019. DO NOT assume this means more spots/selection chances, instead the reason for the two boards is to allow selectees to commission throughout the fiscal year.

Good luck!

I know a lot of folks will be happy to read this. Even if quotas don't increase, there's still two chances per year to get selected.

Reading the rationale for going back to semi-annual boards, it makes sense; especially after watching folks get selected and having to wait almost an entire year before they could commission.

Any read/take on why they went to a single selection board (back in FY16?) in the first place?

Probably to streamline all DCO selection boards into one a year. EDO DCO made the change to two maybe 2-3 years back and perhaps in the future we might see Supply DCO make the next move.

Interviews completed. Upon completion of my masters degree this summer, my package will be submitted for the Sept 2018 board.

My recruiter seems to think the IWC DCO board is still scheduled for Dec 2018. Is there a misunderstanding somewhere (probably on my end)?

My OR let me know that he thought the IWC DCO board convened last week (week of 7/9). Any chance this is correct, or just a miscommunication?

I'm pretty sure there's a miscommunication in there somewhere. The IWC DCO boards are currently set for March and September, but feel free to double-check my math. Paing @RUFiO181 or @NavyOffRec ....

I'm helping someone put their packet together right now, and they are rushing to get their interview/appraisals done, since everything has to be submitted/routed in couple weeks to be considered for the September board.

My OR says he hasn't heard anything about the board date changing and that he "doubts they would do that." If anyone has an idea about what's going on I'd love to know- I'd hate to miss out on this.

And you're sure that you are intending to apply for the Reserve IWC board?
