The OMC was formed for the purpose of bringing together people whose common bond is the love of Magic. Along with others in the world-wide magic community, we are pledged to increase public awareness of – and interest in Magic as an Art and to discourage exposure whenever and wherever found. We are dedicated to mutual aid in the improvement of our craft and the encouragement of Junior Magicians. We cordially invite you to come to our meetings and, if you like what you see and experience, to apply for membership in our club. The primary requirement for membership is your sincere interest in Magic and the willingness to treat it as an Art, no matter whether you are a beginner or an experienced magician.
