2013 ETHOS Awards Program Now Accepting Entries

DSAís annual awards program, the ETHOS Awards, is now accepting entries. Your company may enter its best programs in 19 subcategories across seven categories, providing a wide range of opportunity for recognition.

ETHOS describes the guiding beliefs or ideals that characterize a community, culture or ideology. DSAís slate of awards is designed to identify and promote programs that serve as examples of direct selling done right. Whether used to empower independent direct sellers, fuel business processes or make our world a better place, the programs recognized with an ETHOS Award have one thing in common: they help define direct selling as a business that helps people live better lives.

No matter how long your company has been a board-approved member of DSA, how long you've been in business, what kind of product you sell, how big your salesforce is or how you market your products, your company is worthy of this recognition—but you can only achieve it if you enter the competition!

Review the full slate of awards now and start identifying the programs you think merit this recognition, as well as how best to present those programs to the panel of judges. All programs will be judged by a distinguished group of individuals representing a variety of disciplines, including direct selling, marketing, training/motivation, R&D, sales and more. These inside and outside experts will bring a discerning eye and keen sense of excellence to their review of the entries, so make sure the entry you assemble puts your companyís best foot forward.

Thereís no fee for entry and you can enter as many programs as you like in as many categories as you like—you just canít enter the same program in more than one category. Best of all, should your company be among those recognized, youíll enjoy a variety of benefits to bring your program the maximum amount of attention from your peers across the sales channel and beyond including presenting your program during DSAís Annual Meeting (or another topic-based seminar), being featured on the DSA website and in industry publications, receiving media exposure through DSA press outreach and social media coverage, as well as the impressive trophy youíll receive.

All entries must be received by March 15, so start planning yours now—and plan to take part in an upcoming webinar covering the details on how to create a winning entry. Contact Chief Marketing Officer Amy Robinson or Marketing Director Karen Garrett with any questions.
