The interactive events are meant to generate a discussion between OPM and the officer corps, and make sure officers are aware of the most current trends and policies affecting their assignments, promotions, and evaluations.

To sign up for a virtual road show, please email the OPM-4 inbox at Due to the volume of emails, please format your email to include the following: Virtual Roadshow Request/Date/Presenter (for example: "Virtual Roadshow Request/18 November 2020/OPM-4 Career Management"). 

OPM recommends commands encourage their officers attending virtual roadshows to do so from consolidated locations, to the extent possible given social distancing requirements. This should generate robust wardroom conversation and maximize opportunities for professional development.  

CVR Teams instructions and additional information will be posted prior to each virtual road show on the Career Management Branch (OPM-4) portal page
