Gold Retreat Information and Guidelines
Qualifications start over at the beginning of each qualification period. If a member advances but doesn’t maintain that rank, he or she can still qualify for the recognition retreat by being paid at that rank for three consecutive months for the first time. The third consecutive month within the qualification period will determine eligibility. Click here
for qualification examples.
Translation services will be provided at the retreats based on attendee needs.
If members qualify for two or more recognition retreats in one year, they will be invited to attend each retreat for which they qualified.
Attending members must be active and in good standing with the company to attend the reward trip.
Retreat attendance is nontransferable and not redeemable for monetary or other compensation.
Any branded gear given to qualifiers is available only to those who attend the event.
Qualifiers who are unable to attend the current year’s retreat can defer their retreat experience to the next year’s retreat for the same rank. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to defer to the following year. See the FAQ section for more details.
What if I was paid as Gold before but this is my first time achieving Gold three months in a row?
Although you have previously reached and been paid at the rank of Gold, you are invited to attend the Gold Retreat based on the first time you qualify as a Gold for three consecutive months. For example, Dawn was paid as a Gold for the first time in January 2017. However, her three consecutive months of being paid as a Gold weren’t until August, September, and October 2017. She would be invited to attend the 2018 Gold Retreat, regardless of being paid as a Gold once before, even if it was prior to the current qualification period.
If you qualify for but are unable to attend a recognition retreat, you may defer your qualification to the next retreat for that same rank one time.
To request a deferral, send an email to email@example.com
before the end of the subsequent qualification period with your name, member number, rank, and reason for the deferral.
Deferrals will not be granted without proper notification and are not automatic. You must notify us if you do not plan to attend or you will forfeit attendance to that recognition retreat. A second deferral will not be permitted.
Qualifying members may defer their recognition retreat only once per rank. If you defer, you will receive an email invitation to register for the next retreat after new qualifiers are determined.
If you have deferred your recognition retreat attendance after the deadline provided by Young Living, you will be required to pay the deferral fee to attend the next year’s retreat.
What if I want to bring my co-applicant or another guest?
Only one member per account may attend and be paid for by Young Living, but you may bring a co-applicant, spouse, or business partner as your guest at your expense.
Qualifiers may invite one guest to attend for a $600 fee, which includes provided meals, accommodations, provided group activities, and ground transportation to event activities. Guests are responsible for airfare or preferred travel method. All flights must be booked by July 1, 2018.
Guests must be at least 18 years old to attend.
I had a baby recently. May I bring an infant with me?
Attendees are permitted to bring an infant within nursing age, but they will be responsible for any additional costs associated with bringing an infant.
Young Living is a family company, and as such, we understand that you may want to bring your children with you to the retreat. Please note that while this is allowed, Young Living will not accommodate activities, meals, lodging, transportation, or day care for children. If you are planning on bringing children with you, a list of day care options will be available on the registration website.
May I book my own flights?
We prefer to book flights through our partner agency, Christopherson Travel. If you’re traveling with a guest, Christopherson Travel can also assist in booking your guest’s flights. You will be required to provide them with a form of payment for your guest at the time of booking.
If you still prefer to book your own flights, you are welcome to do so. To book your own flights, you are required to get preapproval from our travel manager, Angela Leichtle, firstname.lastname@example.org
. Please contact Angela at least 30 days prior to the event date for your reimbursement allowance. When emailing, you must include your departure city.
All flights must be booked by July 1, 2018.* Attendees may be responsible for additional charges if their flights are booked after this date.
Reimbursements are processed once the retreat has concluded. This process can take 10–12 weeks.
*Date is subject to change.
May I share a room with a friend?
If you are bringing a guest, you are required to share a room with that guest.
You will have the option during registration to request to share a room with another qualified attendee; however, if space is not limited, you will be given your own room. If hotel space becomes limited, we will award you a $300 product credit for sharing a room with another qualifier. This credit will be applied to your account after the event, and it is offered only if the necessity for sharing a room arises.
