2020 Lifetime Achievement Award Information

How to qualify:

You must be a current member of the Circle of Champions (join here).

  1. Submit the Lifetime Achievement Recognition Form (signatures required) by June 4, 2020. Please note that award level recognitions are awarded only once for each level.

  3. Please include ALL of your lifetime sales on the Recognition Form where noted. (Alternatively, if you have already received an award for a Lifetime level, you may re-submit a copy of the recognition form you submitted for that previous level, and then a new form encompassing subsequent sales.)
