PAY YOUR 2019 MEMBERSHIP DUES ONLINE! Union dues pay for everything the union provides, from negotiating and administering your contracts to providing legal help for members to paying fair wages and benefits for the staff who provides union services. Local 802 members in good standing can conveniently pay their membership dues online, making it easy to stay paid-up even when you don't have time to come into the office. (However, if you have fallen two or more quarters behind in your payments, you'll have to contact the Membership Department at 212-245-4802.) If you're a member in good standing, you can log in to the member portal to make dues payments using your PayPal account, or you can make a one-time payment through PayPal by entering your credit card info - no need to sign up! Need help figuring out how to pay your dues online? We've got you covered with this easy, step-by-step guide. You can also view a Member Portal Overview guide on how to register for an account on the member portal and other general information. If you still need assistance with creating or logging into your portal account, click here.

Spread the word! Year two of the Local 802 Emerging Artists Project is almost here, and applications are open between now and Dec. 31, 2018. The EAP is a four-year, $10,000-per-year grant program designed to encourage and mentor ensembles new to the music scene and the union. The project is open to all groups of three or more players in any genre of music who live or work in the New York tri-state area and who have been performing together for at least one year. Anyone interested in applying should click here between now and Dec. 31, 2018. Applicants' work will be adjudicated by respected members from all areas of the NY musical community. Grants will be awarded in early 2019. This year's winner will join the exciting Roxy Coss Quintet, our first EAP winner, as recipients of this award. Good luck to all!
