Town Hall: Music Employment in the Age of COVID-19

The COVID-19 pandemic has devastated our musical community. We have lost friends and colleagues, and almost all of us have lost our work. Yet our future will arrive, and we need to do everything we can to ensure our health and safety when the opportunity to return to work together arrives.

Please join our distinguished panel on Friday, June 5, at 7 p.m. featuring guest speakers. We will cover a variety of topics including:

  • Whose job is it to keep us safe at work?
  • Who are the stakeholders and gatekeepers for deciding when we can go back?
  • What is our Local 47 doing?
  • And more…

Prepare your questions; we will be dedicating a substantial portion of the Town Hall to Q&A.

This Town Hall is open to all AFM Local 47 members. Registration is required. Link and password will be emailed upon membership verification.
