Resident Magician Membership Requirements and Fees
Magician Membership applicants will be interviewed by the Membership Committee. During this in-person
meeting, you will be asked a series of questions to determine your level of knowledge and interest in magic. If,
as most, you are actively practicing magic as a career or as a hobby, you will be asked to demonstrate some magic
effects before the Committee. You should be ready to provide a ten-minute performance. At the discretion of
the Committee, performers in magic’s Allied Arts (such as juggling or ventriloquism) may also be considered for
membership, again via an interview and a short performance.Magic assistants with legitimate experience should
be prepared to discuss that background, demonstrate a viable understanding of magic they have performed, and
provide video and/or other records of prior work for review by the Committee. If you wish to apply for Magician
Membership as a non-performer, the interview will expand to include area(s) of specialization. Magic historians
and/or collectors should be prepared to talk about their studies, and provide examples. Magic inventors or prop
builders should be able to explain the nature of their expertise, and bring samples of such work.
