Association of Talent Agents
Since 1937, the Association of Talent Agents (ATA) has been the official trade association of talent agencies across the U.S., responsible for legislative advocacy and negotiating agency franchise agreements and regulations with the major entertainment guilds, including SAG-AFTRA, WGA, DGA, and AEA. ATA’s collective voice provides strong and effective support for its members in matters relating to talent-agency business. The association’s one-hundred-plus member companies represent the vast majority of the professional working artists today. ATA provides best practices, a voice in legislation, education, seminars, networking events, conferences, news bulletins, expert opinions and day-to-day support.
