2019 TEAM ELITE PROGRAM

EFFECTIVE AS OF JANUARY 1, 2019

The Team Elite Program is intended to promote long-term, sustainable sales volume growth; organizational growth; and development of new Brand Representatives with sales volume from consumers. This program applies to Team Elite recognition and the 2020 Team Elite Trip and is governed by the following rules (“Qualification Rules”). These 2019 Team Elite Qualification Rules are unrelated to our Mainland China business, which does not participate in Nu Skin’s Global Sales Performance Plan and operates under a different business model.

Nu Skin’s innovative Velocity program adds flexible, fast, and fulfilling options to make Team Elite qualification even more rewarding. We’re rolling out the program across markets worldwide, so please review your Sales Performance Program and contact your Account Manager regarding Velocity transition rules, transition periods, and opt-in requirements.
