New member

If you’ve never been a member of any AFM local, you can join right now online and pay by credit card or download and fill out the PDF application form (65K) to mail in with your check. Either way, you must pay a one-time initiation fee of $100 plus applicable member dues (quarterly or annually). Note that initiation fees are waived for all band members joining at the same time! Also, you must make a payment for your membership: annual membership or quarterly membership – your membership won’t be processed until we receive your payment!

If you have a question prior to applying, contact us at or 212.843.8726 during office hours.
