I have posted the membership process below. Your application was received on Jan. 7th and the office is not open on the weekend.
Applications for membership are processed the following business day they are received. Prospective members applying online receive a confirmation following the submission of the application. All prospective members are sent an acknowledgement letter. Acknowledge letters are normally sent out weekly by email. If the email fails/bounces or if no email address is provided an acknowledgement letter is then sent by the U.S. postal carriers. In this letter, prospective members are requested to check their name and mailing address for it accuracy before the membership packet is sent. The acknowledgement letter also states when they can expect to receive their membership packet and The Linking Ring.
Membership packets are mailed after the 1st of each month.
Prospective members who apply for membership by the 15th of the month will receive their first Linking Ring
the following month. Example Application received on the 10th of the January will receive the February Linking Ring. Application received after the 15th will receive The Linking Ring will be mailed the next month. Example Application received on the 16th of January will receive the March Linking Ring.
Your name will also be published in the Linking Ring as well as on the I.B.M. web site (www.magician.org
). If there are no objections to your membership within 30 days from the date of publishing, your membership will become confirmed.
If you or anyone else has a question or problem with your membership, please contact the IBM Headquarters Office at 636-724-2400 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
