Team National Participates in the Direct Selling Summit
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Recently, Team National along with over 26 other direct selling companies proudly participated in and shared first-hand industry perspective in the first-ever Direct Selling Summit on Capitol Hill. Team National representatives included Executive Vice President Phil Chrysler, along with Eagle Winners Robert & Donna Fason, Randy & Debbie Weekley and Brad Barton who joined forces to communicate their knowledge and experience in the direct selling industry with Congress and their staffs.
While on the Hill, attendees renewed their commitment to the highest standards of ethical business practices, innovation and customer service by signing the Direct Selling Proclamation and Compact. The proclamation was proudly displayed throughout the day to remind participants, as well as bystanders and others on Capitol Hill, of the role direct selling plays in the economy and in the lives of millions of men and women across the country.
“We thought it important that we, at least indirectly, answer some of the misinformation and myths that are out there to make sure that they don’t grow or, more importantly, end up a part of legislation here in Washington, D.C., or the states that could affect direct selling businesses negatively,” said DSA President Joseph Mariano. “That is why it is more important than ever that we bring our folks to Washington so that Members of Congress and their staffs, as well as regulatory agencies such as the Federal Trade Commission, can gain a better understanding of who we are—that, in fact, we represent a diverse population of people from all around the country, diverse motivations, different demographic backgrounds, races, religions.”
“We had a great time meeting with the DSA and our Arkansas congressmen today. They all had great things to say about our industry,” says Robert Fason.
“EYES WIDE OPEN - This is BIG!!! Today's gathering of direct selling field leaders is unprecedented! We are honored and humbled to be here,” says Brad Barton.
“Awesome day today. Phil is in DC for the first Direct Selling Day on the Hill with awesome leaders sharing our great message of hope! You don't have to go to DC to share our hope. Shout it out,” says Team National President & CEO Angela Loehr Chrysler.
