The day ended with a convention highlight–Awards Night. Demonstrators dressed up and spent the evening celebrating the accomplishments of some of our highest achievers, including the top performers in sales, recruiting, and leadership; Artisan Team members; incentive trip earners; Achievers' Bonus earners; Rising Stars; and Founder's Circle achievers.
Convention participants were also the first to hear the Getaway 2013 trip destination (San Diego) as well as the 2013 Managers' Reception destination (The Wizarding World of Harry PotterT at Universal Orlando® Resort).
Awards Night ended with Shelli extending heartfelt thanks to this year's Advisory Board members, then congratulating next year's board members: Heather Summers, Desiree Spenst, Amy Storrie, Ronda Wade, Mary Fish, and Patsy Waggoner.
Demonstrators then headed across the hall, where they enjoyed an after-party, complete with lively music, tasty treats, and plenty of time for one of their favorite things of all–visiting with each other!
Here are some of my pictures from Awards Night:
Each year top achievers are honoured with a free trip in September called Founder's Circle. This year, I was super excited to be recognized for the Founder's Circle trip with 5 of my team members…2 were not able to attend.
Here's when I got to go on stage…this photo really shows how short I am…lol.
This moment was so precious for me…there are 3 spots for top demonstrator in the "leadership" category and I was so excited that the Inky Divas were the top 3. In the picture is Maggie and I and Marlayne earned as well, but, was unable to attend convention this year. I am so proud of these ladies…they work really hard!
This part of the awards night was super SCARY, as part of the outgoing Adivory Board, we were asked to speak for 2 minutes about our experiences and I was terrified…thankfully, it was over quickly. I really love these ladies and have loved serving with them in this capacity this past year and am so grateful for the friendships I have made.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing bits of the awards night!
