Thank you, Ba...i had planned to attend the summit, but bookings have usurped the time slot. I welcome any and all ideas you may develop there.

Tim - Brilliant! We are discussing the idea of an I.B.M. Lecture Bureau. That is precisely the kind of ideas we need. The second suggestion is interesting and I will submit it to the Committee for discussion. One point along that line, the I.B.M. may be naturally hesitant to extend benefits of this nature to Rings that include non-I.B.M. Members ... Members who aren't supporting the I.B.M.. I consider that a fair point.

The I.B.M. Endowment and Development Committee is offering a $1000 educational benefit to any Ring boasting 100% I.B.M. Membership. That money will go a long way towards supporting Ring lectures and workshops. I believe details can be found in the most recent convention issue of the Linking Ring (A benefit to getting the magazine!).

We welcome more ideas and suggestions along these lines. Please don't hold back. I personally would love to see the I.B.M. become more proactive in local Ring, member, and TVP support. This is my goal and I know it is shared by others on the Exec. committee.

In Michigan, I email I.B.M. members several times per month with various magic related news. I also have an EVENTS page available on my website. ( http://www.johnlukamagic.com/mi/events.html ) This enables Michigan Magicians to see what's going on magically in the state.

As someone who is also interested in joining the IBM and the ring in the UK (ring 25 I believe) I have a question. Is it a normal thing to have to pay both dues to the IBM parent organisation alongside a separate fee to the IBM ring itself? I was looking at the British Ring website and they have a separate set of "dues" that they charge for membership that effectively doubles the overall subscription and I just wondered if that was normal? Thanks in advance to any response.

Yes, that's normal. Some local Rings charge dues to pay for the room, snacks, financing lectures, internal publications, whatever.
No trees were killed in the making of this message, but a large number of electrons were terribly inconvenienced.

I like Linking Ring, but it's not as good as Magic or Genii

Is anyone a member in Boston? I am wanting to join. I haven't been a member since I was like 15, and back then it was a small group of men complaining about stuff. This was in NY. I want to know if anyone can give me some insight on the benefits of joining.
