How can I help my unit transition to the new promotions system?

I'm a Senior NCO who currently has no promotable Soldiers. Is there anything I should be doing to help my unit transition smoothly into the new Semi-Centralized Promotions System?

Regardless if you have promotable Soldiers or not, leaders must continually stress to Soldiers the importance of ensuring ther ERB and training records (ATRSS) are up to date.  It may not be now but sooner or later, your Soldiers may end up being recommended for promotion.
