The Syndicat National des Agences de Mannequins (SYNAM)’s vocation is the defense of the interests of modeling agencies and its mission is to represent the entire modeling agency profession to clients and representative organizations, to consult and work with the representatives of the ministries and administrations concerned with the activity of modeling agencies and to maintain social dialogue with its partners, the representative employee unions.
In 2017, SYNAM was recognized by the Administration as the representative professional union of modeling agencies.
Today, more than twenty agencies are members of SYNAM.
As an example, in 2017, SYNAM obtained the easing of the conditions for medical visits for foreign models.
In the context of the COVID-related pandemic, SYNAM acquired financial support for all agencies from the Cabinet of the Ministry of the Economy.
Le SYNAM, créé en 2009, est né de la volonté partagée d’unir le SAM (Syndicat des Agences de Mannequins créé en 1972) et l’UNAM (Union Nationale des Agences de Mannequins créé en 1992).
