The Direct Selling Education Foundation (DSEF) has tapped leaders from various industries to participate in a panel on consumer protection this week. The public event will take place Tuesday at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
Panel participants include moderator Howard Beales, Professor of Strategic Management & Public Policy, Regulatory Studies Center, George Washington University; Lynne Omlie, Senior Vice President, Secretary & General Counsel, Distilled Spirits Council of the United States; C. Lee Peeler, CEO of the Advertising Self-Regulatory Council and Executive Vice President of National Advertising, Council of Better Business Bureaus; and Joseph Mariano, President of the Direct Selling Association.
“This important public forum illustrates how different industries institute self-regulation frameworks that ensure a commitment to high ethical standards and consumer protection,” DSEF Executive Director Gary Huggins said in a statement.
As a part of the DSEF’s mission to promote ethical direct selling business practices and corporate social responsibility, the discussion will focus on the role of self-regulatory initiatives and their benefit to consumers.
