PCS Smooth Move Workshop

Have you received orders to move to a new duty station?  Knowing what to expect and who to contact makes all the difference in navigating and reducing any challenges you may experience during your transition.  Whether it’s your first time moving or you have conducted many military moves, we invite you to the PCS Smooth Move Workshop to learn and share your experience.  No move is ever the same: however, our dedication to providing excellent service remains unchanged.

The PCS Smooth Move workshop provides information for personnel making a Permanent Change of Station (PCS) transfer to another base within the United States (CONUS) or an overseas location (OCONUS).  As per MCO 1754.10A, attendance is mandatory for all departing military personnel, and spouses are welcome and encouraged to attend. 

Registration is required. 



Welcome Aboard Brief

Let us help get you settled into your new duty station.  We want to ensure you have a positive head start on your relocation by introducing you to the on-base and off-base community.  On-base representatives will be available from Housing, Family Care, Single Marine Program, Personal and Professional Development, and various other resources to provide information on their services. Contact our Information, Referral, and Relocation Program for an Electronic Welcome Aboard Brochure.

The Welcome Aboard Brief is held on the 3rd Wednesday of each month from 8:00 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.  Marines in ranks E1-E6, WO1, and O1-O2 are required to attend per MCO 1754.10A.  Spouses of personnel are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Registration is required.
