Officer Promotions

The link above will navigate users to the active-duty Officer Promotions webpage. This site provides commissioned Airmen with critical information about pre-board, post-board, selective continuation, promotion orders, promotion appeals and links to other resources related to officer promotions.


The Selection Board Secretariat conducts approximately 100 boards per year. These include all general officer promotion and federal recognition boards; active-duty-list officer promotion, continuation and force management boards; senior master sergeant and chief master sergeant enlisted evaluation boards; and other boards as directed by the Secretary of the Air Force.


The selection board process is governed by law and Air Force policy. It's a fair and equitable process with many safeguards to ensure high standards are maintained. Once a selection board convenes, the board members work directly for the Secretary of the Air Force and take an oath to perform the duties without prejudice or partiality. Board members continuously commend our Air Force promotion system as the best!


Whether you are coming to San Antonio as a board member or seeking more information about the selection and evaluation processes, we welcome you.
