New York—The Direct Marketing Association laid off 26 employees, representing a 19% cutback in staffing.

“As the recession worsens, the economic activity of business and consumers is resetting around the world, and taking the global economy into uncharted territory,” said John Greco, DMA president, in a statement. “Like everyone else, we are resetting to make sure we’re prepared to ride out this recession.”

Last October, the DMA laid off more than 20 staffers just days after concluding its annual conference and exposition in Las Vegas.

Greco said the DMA will proceed with its DMA09 annual convention, slated for October in San Diego.
