Circle of Honor

The Direct Selling Education Foundation’s Circle of Honor reads like a Who’s Who of the direct selling industry. Created in 1988, the Circle of Honor recognizes industry leaders, academics, and consumer advocates, who made extraordinary contributions to the foundation through personal efforts, involvement, and commitment to the mission and purpose of DSEF.

Recipients show outstanding service to DSEF through personal participation or substantial contributions, are involved in DSEF activities, and hold respectable stature within the foundation and its constituencies. No candidate will be considered posthumously.

The DSEF Board of Directors’ Executive Committee selects Circle of Honor recipients and presents the awards at the Direct Selling Association’s Annual Meeting.
