Binc Awards Two Scholarships to ComicsPRO Industry Meeting
The Book Industry Charitable (Binc) Foundation has awarded $750 scholarships for the ComicsPRO industry meeting in Pittsburgh February 22-24, 2024, to Miranda Nordell at Dreamers & Make-Believers Books in Baltimore and Drew Sullivan at Ash Avenue Comics & Books in Tempe, Arizona. They can use the funds for travel, replacement wages, lodging and meals; ComicsPRO will cover the registration fee for the meeting.
“We are pleased to continue our support for comic retailers with these scholarships,” said Binc’s Executive Director Pam French. “We look forward to seeing everyone in Pittsburgh.”
In addition, Jean Michel at Megabrain Comics in Rhinebeck, New York, will also attend. He was awarded a scholarship in 2023 that was deferred until this year.
ComicsPRO is the only trade organization for direct-market comic book retailers. The organization’s industry conference is a chance for ALL store-front comic retailers (members and non-members) to meet with comic publishers and distributors and other pop culture wholesalers.
