AF announces virtual In-System Supplemental promotions

  • Published

The December In-System Supplemental release, scheduled for Dec. 13 at 8 a.m. CST, will be the first use of the virtual enlisted promotion release for monthly in-system releases.

The Air Force went to virtual notification Nov. 14 with the release of the chief master sergeant list. More than 400 selected for chief logged in to learn of the news on the Air Force Personnel Center Web site. Senior Master Sgt. James Stadler said the process was nerve-racking as he logged in with 20 co-workers gathered around.

"This year I had no friends calling to tell me they already knew they had or had not made it or to ask if I knew," said Sergeant Stadler, functional manager for the First Term Airman's Center and base career advisors. "This was a win-win for the Air Force and the Airmen."

Although the online release worked for chief master sergeant promotions, commanders and supervisors should get out and congratulate Airmen selected for promotion, said Chief Master Sgt. Rusty Nicholson, AFPC enlisted promotions branch chief here.

Virtual notification is part of the Air Force's personnel services delivery concept to provide Airmen the information they need when they need it. The complete December 2007 in-system supplemental select list will be available on the Ask AFPC Web site, the Air Force Portal and on the AFPC Public Web site at

"The new process resolves several challenges with our current promotion notification process: notifying Airmen all over the world on a specific date and time, safeguarding the integrity of the list against unauthorized release and premature notification, as well as letting non-selects determine their status at the same time," said Chief Master Sgt. of the Air Force Rodney J. McKinley, in a Enlisted Perspective sent out Air Force wide Nov. 5.
