About GSMA


Formed in November 2002 with the help of 22 initial members, the Gift Sales Manager Association (GSMA) is the only organization created for and by gift and home décor sales managers.

GSMA uses the combined knowledge and experience of its members to discuss all aspects of sales management, with the common goal of improving company operations and increasing sales. Bi-annual meetings and an exchange of information and ideas throughout the year, help each member more effectively and professionally manage their sales network.

As a group, our mission is to grow the industry by responding to the needs of our customers, rep groups, and Industry peers through education and communication.

We hope you will take the time to learn more about our association and consider making a difference in the gift and home décor industry by joining us!
