Title 35 to Title 5 Conversion
"Both the FY16 and FY17 National Defense Authorizations Acts directed the Secretary of Defense to convert a percentage of Title 32 Military Technicians to Title 5 by 1 October 2017. The Chief of National Guard Bureau is organizing the National Guard Bureau compliance; as of today, the National Guard is on schedule to comply with the law. The complete plan is not yet finalized, however, the Texas Adjutant General is committed to keeping employees of the Texas Military Department (TMD) updated on the progress of conversion efforts.
All employees identified to convert will be notified on or around 1 August 2017 by their first-line supervisor, via a memorandum signed by the State HRO. Located on the TMD, Lone Star Portal are Frequently Asked Questions. For additional information, please contact your first-line supervisor."
