What if you nominated just one Chair candidate this year?

Think about the impact your Chair nomination can make in the community.

We appreciate your help in building our world-class Chair community.

Once you submit your nomination, a member of our Chair selection team will reach out to you to learn more about your referral.

Then we will then reach out to your referral to schedule time to talk & begin the journey.

Finally, we will continue to keep you updated on the progress of your referral.

Q What if I nominate more than one Chair?

A Each Chair nomination is eligible for the $10,000 commission. You will receive $6,000 per launch and an additional $4,000 for each of those launched groups that reach 12 members in the first 12 months.

Q Is there a deadline for how quickly my nominated Chair must launch their group?

A There is no deadline for your nominated Chair candidate to launch his or her group. Typically, new Chair candidates will be supported with a New Group Build effort for six months.

Q What if a nominated Chair launches but reaches 12 members after the first year?

A You will be eligible for the $6,000 launch commission but not the additional $4,000.

Q Is there any commission for a nomination that attends and/or graduates from the Academy training?

A With our continued focus on increasing both the success rate for launches as well as the desire to help Chairs fill their groups faster, we are shifting the commissions focus to reflect those objectives.
