Whether you are an amateur, a semi-professional of a full-time professional you will be welcome as an ASM member. The procedure for joining the ASM is as follows;
Step 1. Come along to a couple of Meetings
The first step to joining the ASM is to attend a couple of meetings and see if you like the club. Meetings are held on the second Monday of each month (excluding January) at:
Royal Historical Society of Victoria

If you would like to attend an ASM meeting, please contact us (see contacts page) for more details.
Step 2. Apply for membership
Once you apply for membership your details are published in the club’s newsletter, “Magic Makers” for two months, giving existing members the chance to comment on your application.
Step 3. Perform
Normally, prospective members are asked to perform some magic during the performing section of a monthly meeting.? This requirement exists so that perspective members can demonstrate their interest and in magic. For some perspective members this is their first time in front of an audience, for others it it simply another gig. The advantage of performing at the ASM is that you are performing for fellow magicians, in a welcoming environment.
Step 4. Membership Acceptance
After the proceeding steps have been completed new members are inducted into the club, normally at a small ceremony prior to a normal monthly meeting. Once inducted, you become a full member, with all the rights and privileges awarded to membership.
