The 10th Annual ComicsPRO Annual Meeting will be held in Portland, Oregon on February 18-20, 2016.
ComicsPRO is the only trade organization dedicated to the
progress of direct market comic book retailers, allowing us to move
forward together. The goals of ComicsPRO are for direct market
retailers to speak with a single, strong voice on important industry
issues, providing educational and mentoring opportunities to current
and future retailers, and offering opportunities for retailers to reduce
some of the fixed costs that we all incur.
Membership in ComicsPRO gives retailers access to group rates
for programs such as credit card processing and group health insurance.
As ComicsPRO continues to grow, members will guide the organization to
the services that will benefit them the most.
Advocacy is a vital and important cog in the ComicsPRO
machine. Too often, the retail segment is absent when industry plans
are formulated and partnerships are forged. As ComicsPRO grows, our
goal is to give retailers an equal voice with our other industry
partners, so we can take an active role in the decisions that affect
all of us.
ComicsPRO is open to all store-front retailers willing to
invest their money, time, skills, and industry experience. Together,
we can provide a strong collective voice and a better future for direct
market comic book retailers.
Please, join us in moving forward together!
