Summary of Changes for the 2018 High Achievers Program

The Paulding Board of Directors recently approved changes for qualifications to the High Achievers recognition. These changes will go into effect for transactions taking place on or after January 1, 2018 and for recognition taking place at the 2019 Gala.

Application Deadline: The application for the 2018 High Achievers will be due on January 25, 2018 by 5:00 p.m. Starting this year, each application submitted must include all required items in order to be accepted. Applications that do not include all required items will not be considered.

Transactions: Lease transactions will no longer be allowed to be included for volume credit. The volume recognition will be based on sales transactions only.

Teams: Teams will now be separated into two types: Teams with a Team Leader and Teams with Team Partners. Additional licensed participants on the Team will now be referred to as Team Members.

The following definitions were adopted as clarification:

  • “Team Leader” shall be defined as the member of the team that is designated to receive all of the volume credit produced by the Team during the Qualifying Year.
    Teams with 3 or more members are required to designate a member as the Team Leader.
  • “Team Partners” shall be defined as those Teams with no designated member receiving all of the volume credit produced by the Team during the Qualifying Year.
  • “Team Members” shall be defined as those licensees affiliated on a Team with a Team Leader.

Minimum Team Volume Requirement: The minimum volume required for Team for recognition for High Achievers has been increased to $2,000,000 during the qualifying year.

Awards/Membership Category: Clarification was provided for each level, and an award was created for those that have qualified for 15 years.

  • Platinum Phoenix – Presented to those members who have qualified for twenty-five (25) total years.
  • Recognition – Applicants total volume will be rounded down to the nearest $100,000 for all recognition purposes. ex. An applicant with total volume of $1,234,567.89 will be recognized as $1,200,000 or $1.2 million.
