A now disbanded magic organization that was founded in May 18, 1998 when a concerned group of professional magicians met at The Magic Castle to discuss how best the magic community could combat the exposure being televised on the FOX-TV series "Breaking the Magicians Code...Magician's Secrets Finally Revealed."

Those at the initial meeting included: Dale Hindman, Milt Larsen, Ed Thomas represented the SAM, David Sandy representing the IBM, Stan Allen, Don Wayne, Walter Zaney Blaney and Mark Wilson.

It was decided that magicians could have the most clout fighting against exposure if they formed a federation of all the major magic societies around the world, thus the name WORLD ALLIANCE OF MAGICIANS (WAM).

The first officers were

  • Walter Zaney Blaney, president
  • Chuck Jones, vice president and treasurer;
  • Frances Willard, secretary;
  • David Sandy and Kevin Spencer, directors.

After trying to get FOX-TV series "Breaking the Magicians Code" off the air, it shifted its focus to trying to stop the rip-off of magic builders and dealers in the magic world.
