I've asked all Lifetime members, losing or maintaining, to take a safety pin - gold or silver. I got giant ones at Hobby Lobby, they also have them at JoAnn's. I bought beautiful glass beads that didn't fit the pins so I used some beads from home but every time a LT member comes in they get to take another bead. So the first time they get a pin & a bead, then each time they attend (as often as they do!) they get to put a bead on. My receptionists each have one - some have gold, one has blue beads with silver, mine is just the star beads - we wear them on our name tags. When they fill one, they start a new one.

So far our LTs are loving it! They wear them in the meetings...I've told them these are their "safety" pins...to remember to come in, remember WE need them & their advice, and if they ever feel they can do better on their own, remember their safety pin. I wanted a way to recognize how powerful our LT members are for our meetings & this is a way that doesn't break the bank. (of course I'd rather give them diamonds! haha)

I made some posters out of foamboard for our Center to recognize 10% & Lifetime awards. We use cutout shapes & write the names of members when they achieve their success.

I also made a Lifetime binder. I have forms printed up on different types of colored paper & send them with Lifetimers to fill out. There are questions about how they got to where they are, what were their biggest changes, favorite recipes, etc. I ask for before & after pics since everyone loves to see those. The binder is at our Center for members to look at & be inspired.
