GENTEXT/REMARKS/1. Situation. In preparation for the FY23 slating season, MMOA will conduct the FY23 MMOA Command Visits and Virtual Roadshow. Based on positive feedback from the FY22 Modernized Roadshow, where MMOA implemented town halls and workshops, and continued to leverage new and existing technology in the conduct of the virtual interviews, MMOA refined the Roadshow and will conduct in-person command visits and town halls, followed by virtual interviews during the timelines outlined below.
2. Mission. From August through October 2022, MMOA travels to designated locations to conduct a series of briefs, in-calls, and town halls. These events provide basic education to the enterprise of manpower fundamentals, supports direct engagement with senior leaders, and increases MMOA’s awareness of both unit and personal requirements across the force. From October to December 2022, MMOA will conduct virtual interviews with eligible FY23 movers to gain a better understanding of each officer's personal and professional desires, as well as provide career mentorship while assisting Marines in making well-informed career decisions. Interviews with movers beyond FY23 are conducted as available per Primary Military Occupational Specialty (PMOS) monitor.
3.A.1. Phase I (15 August to 29 October 2022). Provide commands and individual officers with information pertaining to Manpower Management (MM) policies, procedures, and assignments via the MMOA Roadshow Brief, key leader/command engagements, and town halls.
3.A.2. Phase II (3 October to 17 December 2022). Conduct virtual interviews to provide an opportunity for individual officers to discuss future assignment options with their PMOS monitor.
3.B. Concept of Operations. The FY23 MMOA Command Visit schedule interacts along three lines of effort (LOE), to include the strategic, operational, and tactical LOE. The strategic LOE encompasses MM staff principles conducting Senior Leadership Engagements (SLEs) with component commands. The operational LOE involves informational briefs and meetings regarding current programs and policies affecting the officer corps. The tactical LOEis the personal interview and interaction between individual officers and their PMOS monitors.
