[i]BENEFITS OF MEMBERSHIP IN THE S.A.M.[/i]
When you join the [url=http://magicsam.com/about-s-a-m/]Society of American Magicians[/url], you can take advantage of all this:
[i]MONTHLY ASSEMBLY MEETINGS[/i]
Every month, S.A.M. members assemble to share their knowledge, teach, and learn. Meetings are a safe place to expand your repertoire, try out new material, and gain insights from more experienced performers. And several times throughout the year, most assemblies host lectures given by some of the top names in the magical field!
Most assemblies can provide you with opportunities to perform magic before
the public through hospital programs, community-based magic shows, and
contests. Performing is never mandatory; but for those who want to grow
through performance, the S.A.M. can help interested members acquire valuable real-world experience.
[i]SUBSCRIPTION TO OUR EXCLUSIVE MAGAZINE, M-U-M[/i]
Named for the S.A.M. motto, “[b]Magic-Unity-Might[/b],” M-U-M is a slick, professionally produced magic magazine that teaches its readers new effects every month by some of magic's leading innovators. You'll also find articles about important magicians, magic history, the latest merchandise reviews, and news from the conjuring world. M-U-M is [i]not[/i] available to non-members of the S.A.M. and is free with your membership.
If you've never been to a national magic convention, you're in for a treat.
The S.A.M. holds an annual convention that’s brimming with unparalleled excitement: four full days of performances by famous magicians from around the world, with lots of stage shows, close-up shows and magic lectures.
You'll also see contests, meet magic dealers, and probably stay up all night
enjoying informal sessions with your peers. No wonder over 1,000 magic
enthusiasts flock to this world-class event each year.
This is just the tip of the iceberg. As an S.A.M. member, you will also:
[*]Have access to the extensive S.A.M National Film & Tape Library
[*]Receive low rates for performer's general liability insurance
[*]Be eligible to apply for assistance and student scholarships through the
S.A.M. Magic Endowment Fund.
