Below is an update from the March IBOAI Board meetings.
Awards & Recognition Committee
Discussed ways to elevate the new Qualified Diamond IBO experience at ANA Events.
Qualifying at the Diamond level in North America year after year is a significant achievement for any IBO and A&R is continually seeking ways to recognize that consistency at ANA events. However, A&R is recommending that the first year experience of a new Qualified Diamond at ANA events should also be worthy of attention by Amway events staff. A&R suggests that there are areas with regards to rooming allocation to accomplish this without changing the protocol for IBO leader room allocation.
The Awards and Recognition committee is involved with the Amway Sales team to seek opportunities to inform and educate the field on the details of the upcoming Growth Incentive roll-out beginning September 1, 2017. A&R is recommending that promotional media be created with the cooperation of IBO leaders to release to the Field that discusses the benefits and rewards of the upcoming GI program as it applies to IBOs going Platinum, Q12 Platinums moving to Emerald and IBO leaders growing their business to Diamond and beyond. Highlights of the enhanced FAA can also be incorporated.
Founders Ruby recognition at ANA events was discussed
Achievers 2016 was evaluated for IBO experience, meetings, amenities and location while advanced planning was covered for Achievers 2017 through 2020. A&R believes that by partnering with ANA Events Staff we can have a better experience for all IBOs qualifying for these events.
A review of the EDC/Diamond Club 2017 experience was conducted with the ANA Events staff. Overwhelmingly, IBO leaders loved the recent experience at the Grand Wailea and we encourage qualifiers to complete the surveys so the staff and A&R can review the input from the field to make the future EDC/DC events a great success.
The Amway 60th Celebration planning continues and there was additional discussion on the Emerald Growth Forum program.
NAGC 2017 Scotland had a final planning review and it looks fantastic. Future NAGC dates and locations were also discussed with A&R.
