I am posting this because, first I think it is important, and two, it extends over such a long period the information might get lost. So it will be here if you need to reference it.
R 30 OCT 19 ALCGOFF 156/19 SUBJ: OFFICER PERSONNEL MANAGEMENT VIRTUAL ROAD SHOWS 1. The Boards, Promotions, and Separations Branch (OPM-1), Assignments Branch (OPM-2), Officer Evaluations Branch (OPM-3), and Career Management Branch (OPM-4) have scheduled several virtual road shows beginning 13 November 2019. Each virtual road show will be led by the Officer Career Management Branch and have a guest presenter to offer tailored advice to a specific audience and/or topic. 2. The virtual road show schedule and guest presenter is as follows: a. 12 November 2019, 1400ET: OPM-3 OSMS 2.0 b. 11 December 2019, 1400ET: OPM-4 Career Management/CMD Screening Panels c. 15 January 2020, 1400ET: OPM-1 Promotion Boards d. 12 February 2020, 1400ET: Post Graduate School Counseling Session 1 e. 11 March 2020, 1400ET: Post Graduate School Counseling Session 2 f. 15 April 2020, 1400ET: OPM-2 Afloat Assignment Officer g: 13 May 2020, 1400ET: OPM-2 Intel/DCMS Assignment Officer h. 27 May 2020, 1400ET: OPM-2 Prevention Assignment Officer i: 10 June 2020, 1400ET: OPM-2 Support/Special Assignments Assignment Officer j: 24 June 2020, 1400ET: OPM-2 Aviation Assignment Officer k: 15 July 2020, 1400ET: OPM-2 Chief Warrant Officer Assignment Officer l: 05 August 2020, 1400ET: OPM-2 Response Assignment Officer 3. The information we provide is meant to generate a discussion between OPM and the officer corps and assist officers in the field with becoming more aware of the most current trends and policies affecting their assignments, promotions, and evaluations. 4. In an effort to meet the volume of officers requesting Post Graduate counseling (mandatory for Junior Officers within their first two tours), OPM-4 will offer two virtual road shows as well as post a podcast recording of the presentation on the OPM-4 Portal Page in the spring of 2020. Mandatory counseling can be accomplished in one of three ways: attend the virtual roadshow, listen to the podcast, or thru completion of individual member counseling requests scheduled thru HQS-SMB-CGPSC-OPMemail@example.com. Commanding Officers shall note the method by which mandatory counseling was attained in the Command endorsement section of the Post Graduate Panel Submission in Direct Access. Aviators within their first two tours applying to Aeronautical Engineer Officer Training and/or Flight Safety Officer are not required to complete counseling with OPM-4, but are still welcome to request counseling if desired. 5. To sign up for a virtual road show please email the OPM-4 inbox at HQS-SMB-CGPSC-OPMfirstname.lastname@example.org with the subject “VIRTUAL ROAD SHOW” and the requested presentation date. We recommend commands encourage their officers attending virtual roadshows to do so from one consolidated location. This should generate robust wardroom conversation and maximize call in opportunities for others. 6. Call in instructions and additional information will be posted prior to each virtual road show on the Career Management Branch (OPM-4) portal page: https://cg.portal.uscg.mil/units/psc/psc-opm/opm-4/SitePages/Home.aspx. 7.
