CBLDF Names New Board Members; Griepp To Vice-Presidency

The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund earlier today announced new officers and a new member of the longtime comics organization's board of directors, based on results from the most recent meeting. Cartoonist and former industry company executive Larry Marder was re-elected President. Former distributor and current founder Milton Griepp will become the board's Vice President after several years as the group's Treasurer. Jeff Abraham -- the President of Random House Publisher Services -- replaces Griepp as Treasurer. Andrew McIntire, currently Senior Director of Retail Operations at will join the board. Joe Ferrara, Steve Geppi, Paul Levitz and Chris Powell continue as board members.

You can read concise biographies of Griepp, McIntire and Abraham at the linked-to post above, which takes you to the advocacy organization's site. I don't have much if anything to say about the moves. They sound good to me, and I imagine having this many well-connected comics industry figures will enable the Fund to continue its multi-pronged transformation from last-stand defenders of threatened stores to still providing that protecting but ramping up its educational and more broadly-conceived free-speech initiatives.
