SoundExchange is a proud sponsor of the 100th Convention of the American Federation of Musicians (AFM), taking place June 20-23 at the Westgate Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. Hundreds of delegates from locals across the US and Canada, who represent more than 80,000 professional musicians will be participating in the important AFM governance and strategic planning process. The AFM Convention is also a forum for officers, leaders and delegates to discuss, debate and decide important issues and topics pertaining to AFM members. Along with union business, attendees are treated to music performances, special guest speakers, as well as an afternoon of programs and workshops focusing on the core issues of the union and music industry.
AFM is the largest organization in the world representing the interests of professional musicians. Whether negotiating fair agreements, protecting ownership of recorded music, securing benefits such as health care and pension, or lobbying our legislators, the AFM is committed to raising industry standards and placing the professional musician in the foreground of the cultural landscape.
