NCOPM is the nation’s oldest trade association of personal managers who provide professional management of talent engaged in entertainment, media and performing arts.
NCOPM is committed to the advancement of personal managers and their clients through advocacy, education and ethical trade practices.
Screened and elected by peer review, NCOPM members have decades of combined experience of valuable expertise in commercials, endorsements, film, merchandising, music, publishing, radio, television, theater, touring and other segments of the entertainment industry.
NCOPM members are committed to the advancement of their clients’ careers and have the expertise to find and develop new talent and maximize their clients’ career opportunities.
NCOPM members agree to abide by the NCOPM Code of Ethics, which has served as an industry standard for more than 50 years.
Since its inception, many renowned personal managers have been elected to membership in NCOPM, including Roger Ailes, Hillard Elkins, Seymour Heller, Caroline Hirsch, Richard Linke, Gerard Purcell, Vic Ramos, Jack Rollins, Sid Seidenberg, Mimi Weber and Jack Segal, the inspiration for “Broadway Danny Rose.”
NCOPM is the nation’s leading advocate for the rights and interests of personal managers and their clients. NCOPM is currently challenging the constitutionality of the California Talent Agencies Act (TAA) in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit. For decades, celebrities have invoked the TAA to avoid paying their personal managers by claiming that their managers had acted as unlicensed talent agents.
