A new name for AFM-Canada

Delegates to the 98th Convention of the American Federation of Musicians of the United States and Canada (AFM) have adopted a new resolution, changing the name of AFM-Canada. From September 15, 2010 « Fédération canadienne des musiciens (FCM) » or « Canadian Federation of Musicians (CFM) » will be use.

In Quebec we will continue to use Quebec Musician’s Guild to designate our local 406 and affiliated to the CFM. Offically, the bilingual acronym is « CFM-FCM ». Therefore, there is a big organization called American Federation of musicians of United States and Canada, working under the name CFM-FCM in Canada and AFM in United States.
