On September 29, 2015, U.S. Representatives Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) and Marc Veasey (D-TX) announced a new Direct Selling Caucus in Congress, a bipartisan forum to build greater awareness about direct selling and discuss policy issues relevant to the channel and the 20 million Americans involved in direct selling. The event drew more than 50 people, including DSA member company executives, and also included remarks from Representative Tony Cardenas (D-CA), David Holl, Mary Kay President & CEO and DSA Board Chair, and Joseph Mariano, President of DSA. The Caucus is comprised of more than 35 founding members.
