The SAG-AFTRA Professional Representatives Department will begin processing your application as soon as it is received.  

** If your State requires a license and/or bond to operate as a talent agency, it is required that copies of these documents are included in the package. Franchise applications cannot be reviewed until the required license and/or bond is submitted to the Professional Representatives Department. Please note, the word “Management or Production” cannot be used as part of the agency name nor can an agency name be used that is already franchised.
