Exclusively for female founders and top-level direct selling executives, the Direct Selling Association is hosting their Second Annual Women’s Leadership Retreat in conjunction with their Washington, D.C. Direct Selling Day. The two-day by-invitation-only retreat will incorporate the important aspects of women leaders connecting, networking, and sharing their experiences with the opportunity to assert their roles as leaders of the Direct Selling Industry in meetings with Washington officials.

The DSA has planned this event to facilitate discussion between leaders in the Direct Selling industry and political leaders to share the value of the industry’s salesforce, products, and also how direct selling is an important contributor to the American economy.

By attending these events, attendees will not only get the chance to let their voices be heard, but will also be able to develop personal, face-to-face relationships with elected officials and share important views on policies that affects the industry at large and on an individual basis.

This two-day getaway will also include the chance for women executives to spend time with colleagues and peers from other companies and share the perspective that comes with being a woman, a role model, and a leader of an industry with a female-dominated salesforce. Plan now to attend this event with some of the most interesting women you’ll ever want to meet.
