And now there are more benefits available to AFM members than ever before, including a multi-million dollar pension fund, excellent contract protection, instrument and travelers insurance, work referral programs and access to licensed booking agents to keep you working.
As an AFM member, you are part of a membership of more than 80,000 musicians. Experience has proven that collective activity on behalf of individuals with similar interests is the most effective way to achieve a goal. The AFM can negotiate agreements and administer contracts, procure valuable benefits and achieve legislative goals. A single musician has no such power.

Like the industry, the AFM is also changing and evolving, and its policies and programs will move in new directions dictated by its members. As a member, you will determine these directions through your interest and involvement.

Glen Campbell’s life and career is being celebrated with Glen Campbell – The Legacy [1961-2017], an updated and expanded edition of his long-out-of-print, career-spanning box set. Originally released in 2003, this four-disc anthology collects 78 songs that tell the Rhinestone Cowboy’s story, beginning with his earliest songs, traveling through his classic hits, and culminating with his final recordings.
This comprehensive collection includes songs from nearly all of his 60-plus albums and chronologically charts Campbell’s meteoric rise that made him a Grammy-winning, global pop/country superstar for over six decades with sales totaling more than 50 million albums. This box set includes a 60-page booklet and updated liner notes by Joel Selvin who wrote the original liners. Campbell was a member of Local 47 (Los Angeles, CA) until his death in 2017.
