Why Should You Join the Local 463?

Local 463 Represents Professional Musicians

Local 463 was established in 1907. It represents over 150 local musician members. We act together to protect our mutual interests, to promote and conserve our craft, to agree on fair prices and conditions, and to enforce fair dealings in our profession. By collective bargaining, we can improve working conditions more effectively than players can do individually.

Local 463 has International Representation

Local 463 is affiliated with the American Federation of Musicians (AFM), the largest entertainment labor organization in the world, with over 100,000 members throughout the United Stated and Canada. Our local charter was issued on October 26, 1907, and it has been serving musicians continuously ever since.

Local 463 has Local Representation

Local 463 is a democratic, self-governing organization. Its regulations and policies are enacted at monthly Board meetings and General meetings two or three times a year.
