The Direct Selling Association (DSA) hosted a Legal and Regulatory Seminar in Washington D.C. as an opportunity for direct sellers and industry professionals to listen to government regulators and policymakers.
Included in the meeting were presentations from compliance executives, company general counsels, industry attorneys and Congressional staff on matters that impact the direct selling industry, as well as remarks from Federal Trade Commission (FTC) Bureau of Consumer Protection Director, Samuel Levine, United States Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), and a panel with Reps. Debbie Lesko (R-AZ) and Marc Veasey (D-TX).
“It was energizing to gather for our first in-person Legal & Regulatory Seminar in three years,” said DSA President Joseph N. Mariano. “Understanding the current regulatory and legislative landscape as well as working to achieve more clarity is vital to ensuring the success of our companies and salespeople. DSA prides itself on its ability to convene regulators, policymakers, as well as industry executives and partners who provide insights on key issues and challenges that impact our business model. This is the only forum for the industry that brings together these parties.”
