From The Committee:
The goal of this session is to share our experiences, including trials and tribulations related to TWC, with other musicians in the state of Texas to aid in navigating the TWC application process. We are not experts in Unemployment Assistance, we are Musicians.

The Unemployment Compensation Advisory Committee are members of the Austin Federation of Musicians, Local 433 of the American Federation of Musicians AKA The Musicians' Union. Some work as contractor/1099 workers, others work as employee/W-2 workers in various aspects of the music industry.
