Pampered Chef: Lost my director

  1. My director lost her directorship. I think. She hasn't said anything officially. I know that November was very close. She needed to hit 4000 in order to keep it. I feel really bad. I did about 1300 and this is only my third ss month. I feel like the only one in the cluster. I also feel alone in all this. I know she's concentrating on keeping her directorship, but I really could use a phone call every now and then.
    Does anyone know what happens next? After you don't qualify for the re-promote? How long do you have to wait to get directorship back?
    Thanks
    Lisa

    If your director lost her directorship, you would then be right under HER director. I believe that you'll always be under her from now on. You don't have to wait a certain amount of time to re-promote to director, but she'll need to have five new, personally qualified qualified recruits, if I'm not mistaken. ONe thing that hopefully someone on here can clarify, is I BELIEVE she would need to have three consecutive months go by where she does not meet the qualifications needed to maintain directorship - for those of you familiar with this, is this right? (and the $4000 in cluster sales is just one of them). Her sales count in that $4000 too, so she may still have achieved that. I guess wait and she what she tells you and if you have questions, you can always ask your upline director.

    From what I understand, if you do not meet the director requirements in terms of sales and/or recruits, you are put into "relinquishment". You then have 3 months to get everything back in order... if you do not you lose your downline.

    So in your case, if her 3 months has passed, then you will permanently be under your director's director.

    Ginger and Beth can probably confirm this... but I believe that is correct. I am one recruit away from promoting... so I have definitely been trying to learn all the "rules". I don't ever want to lose directorship once I am there.

    Lisa,

    Hello! I just wanted to let you know that it is not your responsibilty to keep your director a director! You shouldn't feel bad about $1300 in sales, that is awesome for your third month! You earned your SS! WAY TO GO!!

    But the posts above are correct as far as relinquishment and the $4000 in sales including her sales. Is your director a new director? I for example just promoted in October. When you first promote you have a training period of 3 months where you don't have to meet director requirements. Then you have a 3 month relinquishment period anytime after that if you don't meet the requirements. If you go into relinquishment and meet the $4000 quota, but you don't have 5 in your downline then you are still in relinquishment. You have to have sales of $4000 and have 5 in your downline at all times!

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks for all the above clarification. And Marlene IS right, it's not your responsibility about your director, so don't feel badly.

    The above information helps clarify it for me too because as of today I am now a Director!! Woo hoo. I haven't gotten the official call from the home office, so I'm waiting for that to make it all official. That'll happen, right? For all of you who are directors, when do they usually make "the call?" I'm hoping it's soon because I want this to be confirmed for me! :D

    Way to go!!

    Becky,

    YIPPPEEE!!! Congratulations! :D

    Did you earn your trip?

    Yes you will get the call. You have to accept Directorship before you actually are a Director. I didn't receive my call until October 5th but my promotion was October 1st!

    So we will be walking together!! We need to make sure and say hey! :cool:

    How long have you been with the PC? I noticed our consultant #s are close. I started in January 2003. Almost been 3 years! Hard to believe it has been that long!

    Thanks!!! :D I started March of 2003, so we are pretty close. Including the points I'll get for promoting, I only have 50 or so more points to go!! And I still have a few catalog shows open AND two kitchen shows in December, so I'd say it's a pretty safe bet that I'll earn the cruise. Woo hoo!!!

    Yes, we'll have to find each other and say hiat Leadership for our "walk." I saw your name in the KCN. Congrats!!!

    I'm waiting for my call too. My director told me that they usually call between the 5th and 8th of the month. I am so excited! I'm sure we will all be waiting by the phone.

    I don't think I am going to be able to go to leadership :( I have just done too much traveling in the last couple of months. I'm not even sure if I will be going to conference... kinda depends if I get my cruise or not. Just $1400 to go... and I still have 4 shows and 2 catalogs. Congrats.. and wave extra for me when you cross the stage

    Hi Shana!
    YES!!! I got my call yesterday. Woo hoooooo!!!! I also have earned my cruise. I'm very excited and still in shock. I never got into this thinking I'd want to become a Director, but once I saw all the benefits this job has brought me (mostly personally and along the lines of being a huge confidence builder), I wanted others to experience the same thing.

    Sorry you're not coming to Leadership. But, yes, maybe we'll be on the same cruise! :) I suppose I can change my signature now. :D
