2018 Silver Retreat


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.
Translation Services will be provided at the retreats based on attendee needs and level of demand.
If members qualify for two or more recognition retreats for two or more ranks in one year, they will be invited to attend each retreat for which they qualified.
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 FAQ section for more details.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where and when is the Silver Retreat?
The Silver Retreat will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, and at the Young Living farm in Mona, Utah, September 13–16.
What are the qualification requirements?
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 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?
Although you have previously reached and been paid at the rank of Silver, you are invited to attend the Silver Retreat 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 attend the 2018 Silver Retreat, regardless of being paid as 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 2017. He was then paid as a Silver again in May and June 2017. Because his third consecutive month of Silver qualification 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.
If I qualify to attend all expenses paid, what does that cover?
Young Living will cover the cost of your flights, lodging, provided meals, provided activities, and ground transportation to event activities during the retreat. Incidental costs, such as meals during travel, airline baggage fees, etc., will be covered at your expense. If the qualifying member invites one eligible guest, then a $500 fee and airfare will be required for that guest.
I can't attend this year. What can I do?
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, please send an email to recognition@youngliving.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 they are not automatic. You must notify us if you do not plan to attend, or you will forfeit attendance to that recognition retreat.
Qualifying members may defer their recognition retreat only one time 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.
How do I register?
If you qualify, you will receive an email with your qualification information and a link to the registration site.
How do I see or edit my registration details?
If you would like to view or modify any information, you can log in to your registration by visiting our retreat registration page and clicking “Already Registered?” Then click on “Modify” and “Information” or “Registration” for you or any of your guests.
All modifications must be completed 30 days prior to the retreat.
What if I want to bring my co-applicant, business partner, 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 $500 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 August 17, 2018.
Guests must be at least 18 years old to attend.
May my guest attend all the meetings and activities with me?
If a guest ranks below Silver, he or she may not attend training sessions. However, guests may attend retreat activities.
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.
Can I change my guest ticket to another guest?
Yes. To change a guest’s information, please visit our retreat registration webpage and log in to your registration. Once logged in, click Modify > Information or Modify > Registration for your guest.
All changes must be completed 30 days prior to the retreat.
Can I cancel my guest ticket?
Yes; however, guest tickets canceled within 30 days of the event will be subject to a 50 percent cancelation fee. Cancelations made at least 30 days before the event will be fully refunded.
When should I arrive or depart?
Please plan to arrive before 4 p.m., MT, on the first official retreat date and depart at any time on the last official retreat date.
May I arrive a day or two early or stay a day or two later?
You are welcome to extend your stay, and we will cover the airfare cost up to the amount of the original flights. However, you must pay for your own hotel accommodations for the additional nights. Young Living will cover only the cost of ground transportation, meals, and hotel accommodations during the retreat.
May I book my own flights?
Due to the size of the Silver Retreat, we will not allow Silver Retreat attendees to book their own travel to submit for reimbursement later. All retreat attendees must have their airfare booked by our travel partner, Christopherson Travel.
What class are the flights? May we upgrade?
All flights are booked coach. Any upgrades will be at the cost of the attendee.
May I share a room with a friend?
If you are bringing a guest, you are required to share a room with that guest.
At which hotel am I staying? Do you have my hotel confirmation information?
All attendees will stay in downtown Salt Lake City. Specific hotels will be determined once registration is closed.
Hotel room confirmation information will be emailed to you a month before the retreat.
May I book my own hotel room?
You may not book your own hotel room.
What should I bring?
Be on the lookout for packing information via email as the date of the event nears.
Will Translation Services be available during the event?
Translation services will be provided at the retreat based on attendee needs and the level of demand. Please request translation services or hard-of-hearing headsets during the registration process.
Young Living employees will provide any required translation services during the retreat.
