Local 1000 at Folk Music Ontario
Are you going to be at the Folk Music Ontario Conference in Mississauga, Thursday, Oct. 19th – Sunday, Oct. 22nd? Local 1000 will be there! Here is what we will be up to:
If you are planning on eating at the hotel on Saturday night, perhaps we can all dine together. Vice President from Canada Eve Goldberg invites all Local 1000 members to join her at dinner at 5 pm on Saturday in the hotel restaurant. This will be an informal chance to hang out, ask questions, talk about the union, and connect with fellow members.
Please RSVP to vicepr[email protected] so we know how big a table to get (but if you don’t RSVP feel free to come say “hi” and we will make room for you if we can).
Eve hosts a songswap in the hotel lobby on Friday afternoon from 3 pm – 4:30. Come sing a song by a fellow FMO member, or a fellow Canadian, or a song that a fellow Canadian would like (in that order of priority).
Local 1000 and the Canadian Federation of Musicians will have a table in the FMO Marketplace — please stop by and say hi if you can— and pick up your very own Local 1000 sticker.
