Youngevity Accepted as DSA Member
Chula Vista, California-based Youngevity International has been accepted as a member of the Direct Selling Association (DSA), the U.S. national trade association for companies that offer entrepreneurial opportunities to independent sellers.
“It’s certainly an honor to be accepted into the DSA,” said Youngevity CEO Steve Wallach. “We have every intention of taking full advantage of its many programs and activities, all of which we expect will help establish instant credibility around the world.”
As with all companies that have been accepted into the DSA, Youngevity was considered an applicant for a full year before being approved to become a member. This period starts when all required materials are received, and the applicant company is considered to be in compliance with the DSA Code of Ethics.
From there, the DSA conducts a full review of each company’s materials before requesting further information from various sources. At the end of the one-year waiting period, the DSA legal department reviews all materials and reevaluates compliance before presenting the applicant to the Organization’s Board of Directors for consideration as a member. Making it through this process and becoming a DSA member is a major milestone for Youngevity and all of its investors, according to the company.
“We are delighted to have Youngevity on board as an active DSA member,” said Nancy M. Burk, DSA Vice President of Membership. “Only companies that meet our high standards are accepted, and we are committed to making our various offerings even more productive and relevant for this dynamic company moving forward.”
