Wildfire Press & Awards

Some people are exceptional, and at Wildfire we like to honor those people for their contributions in various areas of business and the community. Wildfire members regularly receive recognition for their contributions, including:

Wildfire Awards — Wildfire offers exclusive awards for those who provide exceptional service to the group. We regularly recognize those who have gone above and beyond to help the group as a whole through a number of awards given at various times throughout the year.

Founders Trophy Winner

Eric Hatfield

The Diana Hobson Founder's Cup Award. This is the supreme honor among all Wildfire members and is given to the member chosen by the Board of Directors each year for making the greatest contributions to the group as a whole. This award can be given to anyone who has made a substantial difference in the organization, but it is normally given to an individual who demonstrates strong leadership qualities or performs an exceptionally valuable service to the group.

Grand Top Referrer

Donna Wolfe

Grand Top Referrer. The Grand Top Referrer is the person who has made the most referrals throughout the year. A point system is used to calculate the scores and determine the winner, with referrals to customers outside the group carrying more weight than internal referrals.

Top Referrer Emeriti

Some members are so outstanding at being top referrers that they are finally retired to attain Top Referrer Emeritus status. These members consistently outperform everyone in referrals and deserve special recognition each year.

Wildfire also recognizes the accomplishments of our group members outside of Wildfire itself. Our members are active in their respective fields and often receive recognitions that should be appreciated by the group as a whole. These include:

Industry Awards

These awards are given to members by their peers in their particular field or industry. Wildfire likes to recognize members who have been given awards in their industries in order to share their successes with the rest of the group.

The selection process includes independent research, peer nominations and peer evaluations.

Community Awards

These awards are given to members for work in their local communities. Many of our members are active in charitable or philanthropic work, and we make every effort to recognize and support their activities.

As she continues to thrive and build the health and wellness model of Arbonne -- her entrepreneurial spirit gives motivation, impetus and cohesion to disparate groups knowing full well there is strength in numbers.

Best of Awards

As the result of a poll or survey, members may receive a "Best Of" Award. If this is the case, Wildfire wants to honor these members with recognition by the group. We are proud of our members, and it shows! We encourage our members that if they have received an award, to please let us know so that we can bring it to the attention of the group at large.
