REDESIGNATING TO PAO
Twice a year, the Navy holds an administrative board called TRANSFER-REDESIGNATION Board. These boards are typically held in February and August. Interested officers may visit the Active Duty Transfer/Redesignation page for additional information.
During this board, officers may request lateral transfer into the Public Affairs community. For specifics on what the community is looking for that year, please contact the PAO Community Manager at 901 874 3098.
