ABOUT LOCAL 586
Professional Musicians of Arizona
Since 1912, Local 586 has been dedicated to promoting and protecting professional musicians in Arizona. Members of Local 586 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.
The AFM and Local 586 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.
