Saladmaster, Direct Sellers Meet with Lawmakers in Washington, DC

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: 10/03/18

On September 26, several Saladmaster Life Changers participated in the 2018 Direct Selling Day on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. More than 150 direct selling distributors and executives representing 14 Direct Selling Association (DSA) member companies and 28 states met with members of Congress to share business stories on how direct selling has positively impacted their lives.

“We were thrilled to have salespeople from across the country gather in Washington, DC for our annual Direct Selling Day on Capitol Hill Day to share their thoughts about what it’s like to be an entrepreneur in America today and discuss important issues like the freedom and flexibility to operate their businesses independently,” said Joseph N. Mariano, president and CEO for the DSA. “The relationships our members build on Capitol Hill Day help us remain current and connected with our local representatives throughout the entire year.”

Saladmaster and DSA met with almost 100 members of Congress to stress the importance of maintaining the independent contractor status for all direct sellers. At the morning briefing, attendees heard from the Direct Selling Caucus. Speakers included: Rep. Joyce Beatty (D-OH), Rep. Josh Gottheimer (D-NJ), Rep. Trey Hollingsworth (R-IN), Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC), and Rep. Marc Veasey (D-TX).

“As a member of the Direct Selling Caucus, I am working hard in Congress to create more entrepreneurial opportunities and ladders to the middle-class for more Americans,” said Rep. Beatty. “That is why I am strong supporter of direct selling and true believer in its positive impact on entrepreneurs, customers, and communities.”

Saladmaster is proud to be part of such an important annual event for our industry, engaging with our elected officials at all levels of government to promote entrepreneurship.
