Re: Surrender of Artist Management Agency


Please note that SAG-AFTRA has deemed Artist Management Agency’s Franchise surrendered effective March 14, 2014.

The effect of the surrender is as follows:

  No member of the Screen Actors Guild may hereafter engage, use or deal through this agency.

  All contracts in force between this agency and the members of Screen Actors Guild are ipso facto and without further notice terminated except that the agency may retain and collect any commissions earned under said contracts prior to the surrender of franchise.

  Members shall not be under any obligation to pay commissions to the agent on any moneys earned by members after the termination of the agency contracts, even though such moneys are earned by members on employment contracts in existence at the date of termination of the agency contracts.
 
Please do not hesitate to contact the Professional Representatives Department at (323) 549-6745, if you have any outstanding questions.  Thank you.
