Additional application information, including a sample application, is available on the NPC website. Endorsed applications are due no later than 15 APR 2019.

FLASH FROM THE CHIEF: CY 2020 Training With Industry Program
FLASH FROM THE CHIEF: CY 2020 Training With Industry Program
Training With Industry (TWI) is a 12-month program providing Supply Corps lieutenants and lieutenant commanders with the opportunity to represent the Navy through fellowships within some of the top corporations in the nation. Officers selected for this program will be exposed to executive-level decision making, expand their professional supply chain and logistics education, and provide a conduit for ideas on logistics innovation. 

Candidates for our TWI programs will be selected by a Flag-led selection board and will receive an observed FITREP from the Chief of Supply Corps. TWI sites includes Starbucks Coffee Company (Seattle, Washington), The Home Depot (Atlanta, Georgia), FedEx (Memphis, Tennessee), and ExxonMobil (Houston, Texas).

All lieutenants and lieutenant commanders (not in zone for promotion) that have completed two operational tours, possess a master's degree (or will graduate in CY2020 from any of the Supply Corps post graduate education programs), and have a PRD in 2020, will be considered. Otherwise eligible officers who failed to select during the most recent statutory board for promotion to lieutenant commander will not be considered. Any officer with a PFA failure within 24 months of the board convening will not be considered. Additionally, ExxonMobil candidates will possess (or will earn prior to their PRD) a 1307S, 1307R, 1307P or 1307Q subspecialty code.

This year's board will convene on 23 April. An official letter to the board requesting to be screened for this program is NOT required. However, those officers desiring to submit correspondence to the board must do so no later than 12 April 2019. All correspondence shall be submitted to the career counselor at supplycorpscareercounselor@navy.mil. Sample letters can be found at: https://www.public.navy.mil/BUPERS-NPC/OFFICER/DETAILING/RLSTAFFCORPS/SUPPLY
/Pages/CareerCounselor.aspx
.

Upon completion of the tour, officers will be selectively detailed to our most challenging assignments. TWI is a phenomenal opportunity that expands the business perspective and acumen for our most talented officers. Good luck!

FLASH FROM THE CHIEF: Women's History Month
FLASH FROM THE CHIEF: Women's History Month
We celebrate Women's History Month this year with the theme "Visionary Women: Champions of Peace and Nonviolence." This year's theme honors women who have led efforts to build respect, end violence, ensure justice, and reduce the causes of conflict as the surest way to peace.

In the U.S. Navy, the first women were nurses who served on the hospital ship USS Red Rover in 1862. They were followed by the Navy Nurse Corps' "Sacred Twenty" in 1908.  During World War I, women stepped up in large numbers to enlist in the Navy to meet clerical shortages. During World War II, women discovered new roles outside of the home, joining the workforce, and becoming Reservists in the Navy. Today, more than 77,000 active and Reserve women serve in the Navy's ranks.

Amelia Earhart said, "Women, like men, should try to do the impossible. And when they fail, their failure should be a challenge to others." Like Earhart, women serving in the Navy on active duty, Reservists, and civilians have tried the impossible, and challenged themselves and their counterparts to do the same. Women have established themselves at every rank and in myriad roles ashore and afloat. They are leaders at every level in the Navy, resolving conflicts and offering different perspectives and ideas to find solutions. 

Please join me in thanking all women - past and present - who have paved the way and created a legacy that expands possibilities for everyone.
