More than 1,700 master sergeants were selected for promotion to senior master sergeant, Air Force Personnel Center officials said today.

Selectees will be notified this week and the selection list will be released March 8 at 8 a.m. Central Standard Time.

The list will also be posted on the AFPC public news page, the Air Force Personnel Services website and the Air Force Portal. Selectees will also be able to access their scores in the virtual MPF via the secure applications page.

Those selected represent 13.78 percent of the 12,351 eligible, with an average score of 670.44, 4.12 years average time in grade and 19.27 years time in service. The average score was based on the following point averages: 134.99 for enlisted performance reports, 20.66 for decorations, 70.62 for the Air Force supervisory exam and 392.56 board score.

Promotions will begin in April, depending on selectee promotion sequence numbers.

"Selections are tentative until the data verification process is complete, which is no later than 10 days after the promotion release date," said Staff Sgt. Christy I. Aguigui, of the Air Force senior noncommissioned officer promotions section. "Personnel officials will notify Airmen, via military personnel sections, if their selection is in question."
