The position papers listed below are intended as helpful tools for your use when representing the direct selling industry before key government influentials, consumer advocates and academics. The documents should be viewed flexibly as discussion papers which help to explain and describe concepts of direct selling, in addition to providing the WFDSA position on matters relevant to the industry.
Individual DSA's should feel free to alter certain terms in the papers (presumably with WFDSA permission) so long as the meaning of the paper is not altered. The most obvious example might be substituting "network marketing" for "multilevel marketing" for use in a country where the MLM term is not typically used.
The WFDSA Communications committee has endeavored to make the papers consistent in their organization and use of terms. In order to make the papers responsive to a global audience, many ideas shared with the committee were incorporated into the document. A special thanks to Kurt Bressler, Ross Creber, Bill Duncan and others who assisted with this effort. If you have suggestions of other topics you would like to see position papers on please email the Secretariat with your recommendations.
