On Friday, October 19, the Direct Selling Association (DSA) of Canada hosted their Celebrating Excellence in Direct Selling Gala in honor of their members, both direct selling companies and independent sales contractors. It was a special evening for many DSA members including our very own Amway Crown Ambassador and former IBOAI Chairman Jim Janz and his wife, Sharon. With grace and humility, Jim and Sharon accepted the prestigious Mark of Distinction Award presented by the Canadian DSA.

The Mark of Distinction Award is one of the highest honors you can receive as an independent sales contractor in the Canadian direct selling industry. After 48 years of building an Amway business and helping others do the same, as well as serving on the IBOAI Board to strengthen the Business Opportunity for all IBOs, the IBOAI and the Amway Canada Corporate staff are very proud to see Jim and Sharon Janz recognized for their hard work and success by the DSA. Lydia Ayora, Country Manger of Amway Canada, said it best, "After 48 plus years of helping Canadians live better lives, Jim and Sharon are very deserving of this award."

Please join the IBOAI Board in congratulating Jim and Sharon Janz on their much-deserved award from the Canadian DSA.
