PMA MEETINGS AND EVENTS 2023

There are no more scheduled Members' Meetings or Events in 2022. Dates for 2023 will be posted here and notified by email in the New Year.

About Us

The leading professional body for talent agencies in the UK.

PMA membership comprises Agencies which represent Artists, Dramatists and Creatives.  Our current, membership stands at 200 agencies; an estimated 1000 agents; who between them represent approximately 50,000 artists, writers, directors and creatives working in screen, theatre and radio.

Members are bound by a code of good agent practice, with outlines conscientious regard for the professional welfare of clients; and commitment to industry-wide values of equality, diversity and inclusion, and anti-harassment.  The PMA network is run by its members, for its members – a structure that allows all voices to heard and collective decisions to be made.

The PMA was established in 1950, for: ‘The protection and promotion of the interests of its members variously operating in the [cultural industries] as personal managers … and of maintaining good and friendly relations with one another.’  The spirit of which remains true to this day and extends to many kindred, industry organisations with which we work.

 

How to Join the PMA

The overriding consideration for PMA membership status is that member agencies operate, always, with a conscientious regard for the professional welfare of their clients. This is reflected in our Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) and must be reflected in business practices of all membership agencies. Please also consider the values we hold important: we encourage active engagement with issues of Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity; and the PMA is a signatory to the BFI principles to tackle Harassment, Bullying and Racism.

STEP ONE – Register your interest online. You will need:

  • The names and email addresses of two PMA members willing to nominate your application;
  • To demonstrate that your agency has a minimum of two years experience.  Or, if your agency is new, that you have two years experience as an agent elsewhere.

When you are ready click ‘Register Your Interest” below, where you will asked to provide basic contact information for you, and your referees; and a little information about your agency.

STEP TWO – Provide evidence of good practice.

After registering you will receive an email requesting a copy of your Terms of Business (sometimes called “agency agreement”) and evidence that you hold a separate bank account for client monies.

We ask for TOBs in order to ensure there is no conflict with our Approved Code of Practice (ACOP).   If there is disparity between your TOBs and the PMA ACOP this will affect your application. Please consider the following:

  • Are your operating practices in line with the either the Conduct of Employment Agencies & Employment Business Regulations 2003 (Artists Agencies); or good agent practice as outlined in our code?
  • Does your agency provide its clients with a GDPR Privacy Notice document?
  • Do you operate a “notice period” in relation to termination of representation between the agency and its clients? Time restrictions, or notice periods, are not considered to be in the best interest of the client and therefore, should not be operated by PMA member agencies.

STEP THREE – Welcome to the PMA

  • Assuming the criteria above are met, we will be in contact about how to begin and make best use of your PMA membership.

Timeframe: We aim to process each application in around four – six weeks. Step 2 is often the point where applications falter or fail, so please do check the criteria before you send your Terms of Business.

Current Membership Fees (2022): Agencies with less than 5 employees: £  450 + vat; Agencies with 5-15 employees: £ 550 + vat;  Agencies with 16 plus employees: £1000 + vat.  Membership runs from January to December. And may be paid monthly, quarterly or in a single instalment.

If you have any questions about membership at any stage please email: info@thepma.com.

FAQs

The PMA is a membership organisation for Agents. Our advice and services are therefore focused for our member agents and agencies.  We are not set up to directly support queries from actors, writers and directors.  However, the most frequently asked questions are answered below.  PMA members, your questions may be answered more fully in the PMA Approved Code of Practice which you can download in the members area (see Documents/PMA Documents).

PMA-MEMBERS

I need advice about how to login/send an email/post a vacancy online.

If you have lost your login details either click “lost your password” to reset; or if that doesn’t work, email info@thepma.com

To send an email or post a vacancy login into the membership area and choose from the options available.

 

I need advice about a client leaving my agency or joining from another agency.

Please refer to the PMA Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) which can be downloaded in the Members Area (see Resources).

The PMA ACOP, For Artists’ Agents contains commission split guidance for Artists’ agents when a client moves from one agent to another, including the use of protected projects letters and any commission splits.  It also outlines our position on notice period.

The PMA does not currently provide commission split guidance for Dramatists, Directors or Creatives.

Finally remember that any conflict over a client’s terms of business with their previous agent is a legal matter between the artist and their previous agent.

 

 

NON-MEMBERS

I want to join the PMA but I don't know know any PMA members.

As a membership organisation references from two PMA members agencies is an essential part of your application. We do not accept references from other industry professionals.

I am setting up a new agency - do I have to be a PMA member?

No, you do not have to be a PMA member.   You have a legal requirement to be compliant with the Employment Agencies Act 2003.

The PMA is a membership organisation, not a regulatory body.  However if you are looking for good practice advice you might find it useful our Approved Code of Practice useful which you will find in the “Join Us” page of this website.

I am not a PMA member - can I place an advert on your website?

Sorry! Our Vacancies Board is a benefit for PMA member agencies only.  We do not post any adverts from non-members.

ARTISTS-WRITERS-DIRECTORS

I am looking for an agent. Can the PMA advise?

We do not offer advice about finding an agent.  An agent-client relationship is an important and personal relationship and we feel that requires direct research. Most agencies will tell you on their websites what they do, who they are looking for and how to approach them.    If you want to check whether an agency is a PMA member please see the list below.
