INITIATION FEES, ANNUAL DUES, WORK DUES BUYOUT
Musicians joining for the first time pay one-time Initiation Fees of $115.00 ($65.00 AFM & $50.00 Local) in addition to annual dues. Students in an accredited school, college or university and those under the age of 21 are exempt from the Initiation Fees. Self-contained groups are also exempt from Initiation Fees if the entire group joins at one time.
Current Annual Dues are $195.00 ($66.00 AFM & $129.00 Local). When applicable, Work Dues amount to a very small percentage of MINIMUM fee wages (as opposed to gross contracted price.) For casual and steady engagements, a mandatory individual work dues buyout is required.
All Fees are tax deductible and flexible time payment arrangements are possible. We also accept Visa and MasterCard payments through the office.Become a Member
