Wow. I knew they would be slimming down the organisation, but that's just ridiculous.

Randi and Sharon are just the paid employees. There's also the Board of Directors, which includes Rick Adams and Chip Denman. It's also a membership-based organisation so there are many members across the world.

That menagerie of white tigers isn't going to feed itself.
All magicians have at least a few of those, right?

Oh yeah. All magicians have those white tigers. It comes along with the funny handshake and the regulation fez.

When I first went to a TAM, the JREF has two paid employees, Randi and Linda, and several volunteers. One summer they had an intern.

There's more at the Wikipedia page.
