The Directors Guild of America provides an online version of the list of DGA signatory (a.k.a. "franchised") agencies. The fact that an agency is signatory to the DGA's agency agreement does not constitute DGA approval or endorsement of that agency; it means that the agency has agreed to abide by certain rules and regulations. Please note that all talent agencies must be licensed and are regulated by the State of California. The DGA is not liable for the acts or omissions of any signatory agency. The DGA does not offer assistance in selecting or retaining an agent.
