Leaders earn Parliament Points based on Growing Team Volume, Mentoring Leaders, Personal Sponsoring and Level 1 Sponsoring.

One (1) Parliament Point is earned for every 2,500 Incremental Monthly TV (Team Volume) a Team grows above the Designer’s Baseline TV (Team Volume) each month during the Parliament Program period.

TV growth will be calculated at the close of each business month after roll-ups are completed. A Designer’s TV will be compared to their TV Baseline. If the Designer’s monthly TV is greater than their TV Baseline, growth will be reflected, and the Designer is eligible to earn Parliament Points for Growing Team Volume that month.

 

Full and Partial Growing Team Volume Parliament Points will be awarded by dividing total monthly TV growth by 2,500 (i.e. a growth of 1,250 TV will generate .5 Parliament Point, a growth of 2,500 will generate 1 Parliament Point, a growth of 3,750 will generate 1.5 Parliament Points).

 

If a Designer’s TV is less than their TV Baseline, growth will NOT be reflected, and the Designer will not earn Parliament Points for Growing Team Volume that month. No negative Growing Team Volume Points will be attributed.

Incremental Monthly TV is the monthly TV generated above the Designer’s Baseline TV for any given month during the Parliament Program period.

Baseline TV is the minimum TV a Designer must generate before they’re eligible to start earning Parliament Points for Growing Team Volume.

A Designer’s monthly Baseline TV will be calculated monthly by taking the total PV (Personal Volume) of the Designer and their Team during the same month in the previous year. If a Designer is inherited through a roll-up (Levels 1-4), the roll-ups previous year’s PV (if applicable) for the relevant month and every month thereafter will be added to the Designer’s Baseline TV.

Yes. If a Designer is inherited through a roll-up (Levels 1-4), the roll-ups previous year’s PV (if applicable) for the month they roll up and every month thereafter will be added to the Designer Baseline TV.

Designers will see their Baseline TV in the Parliament Tracker in their Back Office, for each month, beginning on the first calendar day of the month. The Baseline TV reflected on the first calendar day of the month may change for the previous month once the business month has closed and roll-ups have been completed.

When a Designer is inherited through a roll-up into your Levels 1-4, their previous year’s PV (Personal Volume) will be added to the Designer’s Baseline Team Volume for the month they roll up, as well as each month thereafter. The Designer’s Baseline TV may change when commissions are run for the previous month. Once commissions have closed, and roll-ups have been completed, the Baseline TV is final.
