Our new president 2019-2020 - Adrian Salamon Hello everyone, it is an honour to become president of this society in what in 2020 will be the society’s 75th anniversary, having been founded in 1945. The magic bug bit me, in what can be considered later in life these days in my twenties but it has stayed a constant interest, and now profession. It is very common now to see young kids performing amazing magic, as can be witnessed in our junior society which is flourishing. But far from a young person’s activity magic is a great hobby for anyone of any age to get interested in. Magic helps improve critical thinking, improves social interaction, confidence, and main of all brings joy to people. This is why in my term as president I wish to spread news of both the society and the art of magic throughout York. It is disheartening to hear people not even knowing we exist, with people fearing you have to be the next Dynamo to become a member. This is not true, and we hope to create opportunities prove this the case.
