I have finally talked my wife into letting me join the IBM but I have a question. In order to join my local ring do I need to join the larger IBM? I can not find any info on this subject. I am just wondering if I join the main IBM if I am then capable of attending any meeting at any local ring.

Thanks,
Eric

Every local ring has its own rules and bylaws, but generally as a member of the IBM you are welcomed to local rings. As far as joing a local ring, generally , yes you must join the IBM. Some magic clubs exist as rings and/or SAM Assemblies, and don't necessarily require membership in the national organization for membership in the local club, but to vote or hold office you must be a member. Best way to find out, check with the contact person at the local ring. You can find that information on the IBM website.

Thank you for the info.

Nope...Ring 370 in Summerville, SC, the IBM's newest!

If you need help in joining the IBM National, let me know.

Mark. :)
