All active members in good standing continuously for one year prior to nomination are eligible to run for office. In accordance with the Local 655 Bylaws, nominations will be taken from the floor, followed by a ballot vote. The newly elected officer shall be installed, and shall take office, immediately after the vote. If you are interested in being nominated you must be present or provide a written statement accepting the nomination prior to the meeting. Should a current Officer be elected, nominations and elections for the resulting vacancy will also be conducted at this meeting.
AFM Entertainment, our new online booking and referral service, will handle all communications with a potential purchaser (e.g. the father of the bride). Every gig will be a union gig - net wages will be at or above the local union's wage scales, with the proper work dues and contracts filed. In accordance with the AFM Booking Agent agreement, we'll charge a commission (with a maximum rate of 20%, although in most cases it will be lower).
AFM Entertainment is now accepting registrations from AFM members who are solo artists or leaders of self-contained bands and ensembles.
