JOIN THE FUN! The FELLOWSHIP! The MAGIC!
COME JOIN THE BIGGEST & THE BEST!
The International Brotherhood of Magicians, founded in 1922, is the world's largest and most prestigious organization for professional and amateur magicians, magic enthusiasts and collectors of magic apparatus. As a member of the I.B.M., you will enter into a magical world of learning, performing and fellowship. You'll join a network of magicians who meet at local meetings, international conventions and communicate through the prestigious monthly magazine, The Linking Ring. Additionally, we have an electronic online Ring for daily interaction and information via the Internet. The I.B.M. is open to anyone seven years and older who has a sincere interest in the art of magic. We invite you to join us!
"The I.B.M. has been a large part of my life for over 30 years! I highly recommend joining to any serious student of magic!"

WE BRING THE MAGIC CLOSE TO YOU!
Groups of magicians have monthly gatherings in local clubs, called Rings, to practice the newest effects or discuss the latest topics in magic. You'll have the opportunity to enjoy lectures and demonstrations from professional magicians who travel the magic club circuit. There are over 250 Rings located in or near most major cities around the world. Those who are accepted into the international organization may apply for Ring membership.
