October 2016 – Musical Performance Trust Fund

The AFM Musical Performance Trust Fund (MPTF) administered through the AFM, provides matching funds for gigs that are sponsored by schools, nursing homes, libraries, etc., and are free and open to the public. A non-profit co-sponsor pays part of your fee and MPTF provides the rest. MPTF allocates approximately $4,000 to Local 1000 for our members to use each year.

September 2016 – AFM Collective Bargaining Agreements:

Collective Bargaining Agreements (CBA’s) are the back bone of any Union. They form a agreement between Employer and Employee. As traveling musicians sometimes we are both! Local 1000 has several of our members who have CBA’s as a tool to pay dues and make monthly pension payments. On our September call we had several of our members talking about their experience using CBA’s. Whether you have a CBA and want more information or simply would like more information about them, join John McCutcheon, Dave Rowe, Debra VanKleef and Colin Dean as they share their insights.

June 2016 – Arts in the Classroom

Our June meeting focused on Arts in Education. Many of our members do work in schools or afterschool programs. The power of Arts Integration is strong. If you have ever presented in a classroom or in front of a school assembly you know the excitement that is generated when we are able to share an authentic arts experience and connect it with the standards the students are learning in the classroom.
