This PDF calendar contains dates for upcoming calendar year 2019 development teams, school boards, promotion boards and special boards.

DTs periodically evaluate records to provide deliberate counsel maximizing individual goals and potential through: vectoring (career counsel), Command or Key Position certification, and In-residence DE recommendations.

Reserve Enlisted and Officer Development Plans (R-EDP/R-ODP) are a critical communication link between a reservist, a mentor (optional), the coordinator, and the DT. DPs should be completed annually, or when personal circumstances warrant, to indicate education/training desires, assignment preferences, and goals. DPs are available for update in the vPC Dashboard, accessible through myPers
