Periodic meetings with subordinate commands
The MCPON is the senior enlisted member of the
Navy and is the primary enlisted advisor to the CNO and
CHNAVPERS. The MCPON represents the Navys
enlisted community and its dependents.
The MCPON serves as the chairman of the CNOs
MCPO advisory panel. It is a forum for the fleet, force,
and command master chiefs to address and recommend
solutions to adversities that are beyond the capability of
their commands to resolve. A primary function of the
panel is to respond to CNO tasking by providing
recommendations on various programs and issues that
affect the Navys enlisted community.
Fleet, force, and command master chiefs receive
selection by their superior leadership and management
skills as well as their ability to communicate effectively
with juniors and seniors.
