WHY I AM IN THE UNION: "There are many reasons I joined the AFM and many reasons that I maintain my membership. For me, the first and foremost reason would have to be the opportunities that have come my way in the film and TV industry. There are many financial benefits that the AFM has fought for with the recording industry that truly make a difference. For instance, pension fund payments, H&W payments, residuals, secondary use payments, etc.  If you are not familiar with these, take the time to look them up and see how beneficial economically your membership can be.  If you visit the AFM website ( you will also find many group insurance offerings. Including  instrument, health, dental, car insurance programs that are available to members. I take advantage of many of these programs."
