The USDSA is now offering a Global Associate Membership to direct selling companies worldwide. As a service to those with international operations that might not plan to enter the U.S. market, Global Associate Membership allows companies from across the world the opportunity to tap into the nearly 100 years of USDSA experience.
As a Global Associate, members will have access to all of the research services, informational resources and networking opportunities that full active DSA members enjoy: discounted prices for DSA event registration; unlimited access to the members-only section of the DSA Web site; and receipt of the association's weekly enewsletter, InTouch.
Global Associates will be ineligible to take advantage of service programs for the field since they do not have a salesforce in the U.S. They may not participate on DSAs operating committees, but may join the International Council.
In order to become a Global Associate Member, companies must maintain active membership in the direct selling association of the country in which their primary base of operations exists. There will be no limit on the amount of time a company can be a Global Associate member, and the cost will be $3,000 per year.
