Howard Lederer Joins Poker Player Alliance Board of Directors

by Lou on June 14, 2006

The Poker Player Alliance (PPA) announced that Howard Lederer joined its board of directors.

“I am thrilled that Howard has agreed to join our board,” said Michael Bolcerek, president of the PPA. “Howard’s reputation within the poker community and his ongoing efforts on behalf of our organization and poker players to defend the game from attacks by Congress and others make him a great addition to the board.”

Board members also include Linda Johnson, Greg Dinkin, Mary Magazine, and Jan Fisher. Representing 27,000 poker players, in April the PPA along with Lederer, Chris Ferguson, and Greg Raymer met with members of Congress in Washington DC to educate them about poker and discuss issues of current concern, including efforts to end online poker.

Lederer said, “The Poker Players Alliance’s mission is critically important as the game has increasingly come under attack . . . by Congress, and I believe that all poker players should join the PPA and tell Capitol Hill that we do not want the Federal government to ban an American tradition that we love.”
