General Updates

Slightly two years after the establishment of the Modelling Agencies Association of Nigeria MAAN, new executives have come on board with a mandate of making the association formidable and impactful in the Nigerian society. The new excos are focused on collating names of signed up agencies and managers in the industry to disseminate to stakeholders in the industry and other professional organisations; organisations like ADVAN, APCON, AAAN, OAAN and the likes as well as corporate Nigeria.

Agencies and professional managers who intend to be part of the association are hence advised to identify themselves before the end of June 2015 as the association plans to have finalise all by first week of July 2015 and an updated list published and circulated. It is believe that Nigeria modelling industry has come of age and it is time for all stakeholders to recognise the players in the industry who are committed professionals on the job and a key role of the association is to authenticate this hence making the environment safer for all stakeholders – Models and clients alike.

The benefits of associating with the association cannot be over emphasized; for agencies and managers this includes making available the opportunity for models under them and managers themselves to attend trainings and programmes related to the industry with a focus on strengthening same. Example is the yearly models workshop  as well as other seminars and also not forgetting the yearly models convention.

In the light of making the operations of agencies and managers more transparent, the new executives have resort to making the website more of an engaging portal hence both models and managers/agencies can now sign up  and interactivity enhanced.
