GENTEXT/REMARKS/1.  Background.  In accordance with reference (a), the FY22 Enlisted Retention Campaign began on 7 July 2021.  As competitiveness increases and Primary Military Occupational Specialties (PMOS) are designated fast filling MOS (FFM) for Subsequent Term Alignment Plan (STAP) boatspaces, Manpower Management Enlisted Assignments (MMEA) will execute an Enlisted Career Retention Board (ECRB) to ensure the retention of the best and most qualified Marines seeking reenlistment.
2.  In an effort to provide increased transparency, consistency, and timeliness, CMC (MMEA) conducted a pilot ECRB in FY21 for STAP Marines.  Although successful, CMC (MMEA) remains committed to continual improvement through Fleet Marine Force (FMF) input and involvement.  To that end, numerous changes have been made to processes and procedures that increase the efficiency, effectiveness, and transparency of the ECRB.  Principle among the changes is the increased quantity of board members from the FMF. The FY22 STAP ECRB will be comprised of eleven (11) senior enlisted Marines from across the FMF and supporting establishments, three (3) senior enlisted Marines from CMC (MMEA), and one (1) 4821 Master Gunnery Sergeant from CMC (MMRP).
3.  The FY22 STAP ECRB will convene virtually from 30 November 2021 to 23 December 2021.  The board will select the best and most highly qualified STAP Marines from those who have submitted for reenlistment to meet the Marine Corps' operational needs by PMOS and zone.
4.  In accordance with references (a) and (b), the STAP submission deadline for reenlistment is 30 November 2021 for all non-historic FFMs.  The STAP submission deadline for historic FFMs identified in reference (b) is 31 October 2021.  Per reference (b) Marines will be notified that their PMOS has been designated an FFM by their Unit Career Planner. Marines who desire to reenlist in an FFM must have a reenlistment request submitted to CMC (MMEA) via TFRS by 2359 EST on the day of their respective submission deadline.
4.a.  Requests submitted after the established deadlines will not be considered by the ECRB and will be held as alternates.
5.  Eligibility Criteria.  To be considered for retention on the FY22 STAP ECRB, Marines must meet the criteria below:
5.a.  Must be an FY22 STAP Marine as defined in reference (a).
5.b.  Must meet all reenlistment prerequisites or have appropriate waiver, in accordance with references (b) and (c).
