Q. Where and when is the 2018 Silver Retreat?
A. The retreat will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, and at the Young Living Lavender Farm in Mona, Utah, September 13-16.
Q. What are the qualification requirements?
A. Any member who has qualified as a Silver for three consecutive months between May 1, 2017, and April 30, 2018, and who has not previously attended, is invited to one Silver Retreat. This reward is offered for one person per membership.
Q. What if I was paid as a Silver before, but this is my first time achieving Silver three months in a row?
A. Although you have previously reached and been paid at the rank of Silver, you are invited to attend based on the first time you qualify as a Silver for three consecutive months. For example, Dawn was paid as a Silver for the first time in January 2017. However, her three consecutive months of being paid as a Silver weren’t until August, September, and October 2017. She would be invited to the 2018 Silver Retreat regardless of being a Silver once before, even if it was prior to the current qualification period.
Q. What if not all of my three consecutive qualifying months are within the qualification period?
A. The retreat you will be invited to attend is based on the qualification period in which your third qualifying month falls. For example, Glen advanced to Silver in April 2017, then was a paid as a Silver again in May and June 2017. Because his third consecutive month of Silver falls within the current qualification period, he is eligible for the 2018 Silver Retreat, even though his first consecutive month began in the previous qualification period.
Q. If I qualify to have all expenses paid, what does that cover?
A. Young Living will cover the cost of the qualifying member’s flights, housing, certain meals, and certain activities during the retreat dates. Incidental costs, such as meals during travel, airline baggage fees, etc., will be covered at the attendee’s expense.
Q. I can’t attend this year. What can I do?
A. If you qualify for a recognition retreat but are unable to attend, you may defer your qualification to the next retreat for that same rank one time.
To request a deferral, please 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.
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 provided deadline, you will be required to pay a deferral fee to attend the next year’s retreat.

A. If you qualify, you will receive an email with your qualification information and a link to the registration site.
