2016 Silver Retreat

FAQ
Silver 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 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.
Retreat attendance is non-transferable 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 are able to defer their retreat experience to the next year’s retreat for the same rank. Please email recognition@youngliving.com to defer to the following year. See the FAQsection for more details.

Frequently Asked Questions

Qualifications
Where and when is the Silver Retreat?
The retreat will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, and at the Young Living farm in Mona, Utah, from September 29–October 2, 2016.
What are the qualification requirements?
Any member who has qualified as Silver for three consecutive months between May 1, 2015, and April 30, 2016, and who has not previously attended a Silver Retreat, is invited to attend one time. This reward is offered for one person per membership.
Qualification Examples
What if I was paid as Silver once but this is my first time achieving Silver three months in a row?
Though 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 Silver for the first time in January 2015. However, her three consecutive months of being paid as a Silver weren’t until August, September, and October 2015. She would be invited to the 2016 Silver Retreat regardless of being a Silver once before, even if it was prior to the current qualification period.
What if not all of my three consecutive qualifying months are within the qualification period?
The session you will be invited to attend will be based on the qualification period in which your third qualifying month falls. For example, Glen advanced to Silver in April 2015, then was a paid as Silver again in May and June 2015. Because his third consecutive month of Silver falls within the current qualification period, he is eligible for the 2016 Silver Retreat, even though his first consecutive month began in the previous qualification period.
If I qualify to attend all expenses paid, what does that cover?
Young Living will cover the cost of your flights, housing, certain meals, and certain activities during the retreat dates. Incidental costs, such as meals during travel and airline baggage fees, etc., will be covered at your expense.
I can't attend this year. What can I do?
