All of which must have relevant input during the conference.


THE PURPOSE


The Conference will be organised to set standards

A Committee was setup to plan for this conference within a period of 4 – 6 weeks
from the date of the meeting.
This committee comprised members from SLAGA, Other Gospel Music Groups,
Producers and also the Promoters Union.


National Consultative Conference (NCC)


Issues to be Address by the NCC

  1. Setup a “National Accreditation of Gospel Musicians” body :
    During the NCC, standards will be set to govern artist conducts.
    Artists will have to meet a very high moral standard before they can be recognised as Gospel Artists/Ministers.
  2. Committee to present a five-year plan (Road map) on the direction they want to go.
    And also what they want to accomplish in the next 5 years.
    This move ensures all members are aware and also share the vision of the Group
  3. Setup an institution that supersedes all other music groups across the country “Umbrella of Umbrella’s”.
    This institution must incorporate leaders of all other institutions. “The Council of Gospel Musicians”.
  4. Establishment of a “Credence Committee”:
    This committee will be tasked with the responsibility of screening all gospel songs before they are released.
    This is to ensure that every gospel song meets certain criteria and standards.
    Each song must portray a right image and the values upheld by the gospel music institution.
  5. Discuss Establishment of a music academy, to provide pre knowledge,
    fundamentals of voice control, protocols to be observed by gospel artists before ministration,
    And also advanced skills for upcoming gospel Artists.
  6. A Committee to regulate Gospel Album releases. With this setup,
    Artists will have to book launching dates as planned by group heads,
    so number of album release can be regulated by the body.
    This measure is to encourage proper planning and high level of support.
    The committee will regulate album launchings by properly scheduling the dates and number of launchings per year.
    So, events can be planned and supported properly.
    This committee will comprise of A Gospel Singer, A Gospel Promoter and a Producer.
