Earn one (1) Parliament Point for every 5,000 Incremental Monthly Team Volume TV (Team Volume) a Team grows in a month, above the Independent Designer’s previous year’s baseline TV for any given month.

Incremental Monthly TV is defined as any monthly TV generated above the Designer’s previous year’s baseline TV for any given month.

Baseline TV for the Program Period is defined as all active Independent Designers from their Levels 1-4, as of roll-ups in July 2017, including any Designers who are added to their Levels 1-4 via enrollment or roll-up as of (approximately) July 11, 2017.

 

A Designer’s Baseline TV may increase if any Designers are added to Levels 1-4 via enrollment or roll-up throughout the Program Period.

A Designer’s monthly Baseline TV will be determined during the Program Period shortly after the date of O2’s commission run each calendar month. A Designer’s Baseline TV will be calculated monthly by taking the total PV (Personal Volume) of the Designer and their Team during the same month the previous year. If a Designer rolls up into a Designers Level 1-4, their previous year’s PV (if any) for the relevant month will be added to the Independent Designer’s Baseline from their roll-up month and every month thereafter.

TV growth will be calculated as followed: at the end of each calendar month, an Independent Designer’s TV will be compared to their Baseline TV. If the current year’s monthly TV is greater than their Baseline TV, growth will be reflected and the Designer will be 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 5,000 (i.e. growth of 2,500 TV will generate .5 Parliament Points for that month).

 

If this year’s monthly TV is less than last year’s monthly TV, 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.

When Independent Designers roll up into your Levels 1-4, their previous year’s PV (Personal Volume) will be added to your BTV for the month they roll up, as well as each month thereafter. As roll-ups occur, your BTV may change when we run the commission for the previous month (on or around the 10th of the following month).

Yes. If a Designer in your Levels 1-4 was active during any calendar month of the previous year, their PV will be included in your BTV.

Designers become Inactive because their PV has fallen below 75 for at least three (3) consecutive months. They may have had higher PV in some of the earlier months of the program period, but as they stopped actively working their business, their contributions to your PV are minimal. To overcome this, you can Sponsor New Designers to your Levels 1-4 who would contribute to your TV, who were not previously included in your Baseline TV.

Earn one (1) Parliament Point for Mentoring Leaders (Developing Leaders), when…

 

  1. An Independent Designer personally advances to a new Career Title of Team Leader or above for the first time.*
  2. A Direct Independent Designer achieves a new Career Title of Team Leader or above for the first time.**

 

*If a Designer personally promotes up multiple Career Titles above Team Leader for the first time in one (1) month, they will earn one (1) Parliament Point for Mentoring Leaders for each new Career Title.

**The Mentor must have a Paid-As Title that is equivalent to, or higher than, the Direct Designer’s new achieved Career Title (Team Leader or above) in the same calendar month, the Direct Designer advances in rank. If the Direct Designer promotes up multiple Career Titles above Team Leader for the first time in one month, Parliament Points for Mentoring Leaders may be earned for each new achieved title following the same rules.

Yes. Designers are eligible to earn Mentoring Leaders Parliament Points for Direct Designers who roll up beginning in the same month that the roll-up occurs. Parliament Points earned by the previous Mentor will not roll up to the new Mentor.

Earn two (2) Parliament Points for Personal Sponsoring for every new, Personally Sponsored Designer* who generates 750 PV (Personal Volume) cumulatively from 12:00 am CT on February 1, 2018 through 11:59 p.m. CT on June 30, 2018.

 

*New Personally Sponsored Designers for the Parliament Program are defined as new, Designers Personally Sponsored from 12:00 a.m. CT on January 1, 2018 through 11:59 p.m. CT on June 30, 2018.
