DSA Suppliers receive unequaled access to the direct selling industry with opportunities to network one-on-one with industry executives, establish contacts and learn the culture, management principles and support service needs of our member companies.
Supplier affiliation identifies a company as a part of and supporter of the direct selling community. It connects a company with industry contacts and offers unmatched opportunities to network and exchange ideas with industry leaders at our meeting and events.

Suppliers receive our monthly newsletter, DSADigest, and can communicate with DSA member companies through the quarterly SupplierSource, an e-newsletter that keeps members informed about current events and timely information, through submitting content-driven articles on products or services, company news or new trends.
DSA’s Supplier Advisory Committee, comprised of a select group of Suppliers, acts as liaison between DSA and its Supplier companies. The committee helps Suppliers stay informed and provides a platform to communicate comments, questions, needs and suggestions directly to our Board of Directors.
Supplier affiliates have the opportunity to purchase advertisements in our newly developed Annual Meeting publication, DSA Partner Magazines, and to sponsor an element (or elements) of a DSA event.
Supplier Exhibitors set themselves apart by exhibiting at our Annual Meeting. The Exhibit Hall is where our member executives go to network, learn about business solutions and connect with peers.
Standard booths measure 8” x 10” and are $350. Space and opportunities to upgrade are limited. Supplier companies must renew for the following year before their exhibit application can be processed. Applications for Annual Meeting exhibit booths open in the Fall.
Perfecting Partnerships Round Table
The Perfecting Partnership Roundtable was held during the 2014 Annual Meeting. It cultivated valuable ideas and pinpointed best practices for relationships between our members and Supplier affiliates. DSA members and Suppliers discussed their personal experiences to determine what aspects of working partnerships were successful and what aspects needed improvement.
Supplier Partnership Award
Our Awards Committee established the Partnership Award in 1995 to recognize Suppliers that have had a measurable impact on the growth or development of an active member company. The award is presented at our Annual Meeting Awards Banquet.
DSA Logo Usage
Active Suppliers may display our Supplier logo on their website or printed materials, recognizing their participation in the Association and the direct selling industry.
