AFM DiversityThe AFM has been promoting and protecting professional musicians for over 110 years. Local 40-543 has been serving Baltimore, MD and area musicians since 1903 and continues to be an effective advocate for musicians' rights in the workplace (be that a nightclub, a symphony stage, in a recording studio, or on tour). The AFM and Local 4-543 protect the recorded works musicians produce from being exploited, and protect our members' live performances by providing several types of benefit programs that help them to build successful careers.

Members of Local 40-543 of the AFM are secure in knowing that their organization is actively lobbying to promote legislation and public awareness that protects musicians' interests, negotiating collective bargaining agreements with the recording industry, motion picture industry, jingle industry, TV networks, National Public TV and Radio, and providing excellent wages and working conditions for its members.
