ComicsPRO Growth Sparks New Position
First paid staff member comes from within trade organization

ComicsPRO, the retailer trade and advocacy group, has announced that Amanda Fisher, owner of Muse Comics in Misssoula, Montana has been officially hired for the newly created role as ComicsPRO’s Communication Coordinator.

"Amanda Fisher is exactly the right person for this job," said Joe Field, ComicsPRO’s President and the owner of Concord CA’s Flying Colors Comics. "ComicsPRO has now grown to over 100 retailer members representing more than 140 store-fronts, so the ComicsPRO board has become increasingly aware that we need specific, reliable and dedicated hours each week to maintain the ComicsPRO momentum."

Among Fisher’s duties as ComicsPRO’s Communications Coordinator are the managing of all information and communication within the organization and effectively relaying that information, when needed, to the group’s industry partners. She’s also responsible for collating internal and external data and presenting it in a way the ComicsPRO board and membership can use it to further guide the organization's activities. Her duties also include membership processing, organizing correspondence, maintaining financial records and creating budget reports, preparing and disseminating the ComicsPRO e-mail newsletter, and helping to coordinate the group’s annual meeting.

"I've been committed to ComicsPRO since its creation, and I'm excited to see over 100 hardworking retailers join together to promote their stores and our industry," said Fisher. "We've grown beyond the point of being a volunteer-only project, and as ComicsPRO's first paid staff member I look forward to making our organization even more efficient, effective and active."

ComicsPRO is the specialty market retailer trade and advocacy group. The goals of the group 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 common fixed costs.
