DSA Canada Update

The DSA Canada held its Annual Meeting and Conference in June in King City, Ontario.  The three-day event was a great success offering several workshops and sessions on a range of topics in a small classroom setting.  With keynote addresses by Joseph Mariano, President USDSA and Ed Holder, Member of Parliament it was an interactive meeting full of content.

It wasn’t all work at the 2012 Summer Summit.  With live music on two nights, the 2nd Annual Richard Lamb Memorial Golf Tournament, the Direct Selling Education Foundation (DSEF) Silent Auction and the beautiful, serene location it was the perfect combination of work and play.

During the Summit the DSA was honoured to present the following Awards:
