TBR — Las Vegas – The Gospel Workshop of America (GMWA) and the Gospel Announcers Guild recently gathered for their Annual Board Meeting and Annual session in Las Vegas, NV.

The recently re-organized Gospel Announcers Guild (GAG) and the Gospel Music Workshop of America Board of Directors, under the leadership of Bishop Albert Jamison, Sr., Chairman of the Board GMWA, along with hundreds of delegates gathered for their annual session to work out final details for their upcoming 48th GMWA Convention, slated to take place in New Orleans, LA, July 26 – July 31, 2015.

The day sessions included Praise & Worship, Inspirational Moments, Open Forums, Praise Breaks, Label Presentations and Nightly services.

The gathering in Las Vegas also marked the first time the organization had come together since the home-going of their National Chairman and Vice Chairman of the GMWA,  Al “The Bishop” Hobbs. Al was the Heart of the GAG and truly had a connection with all of the members. He was known for treating everyone as somebody and giving people an opportunity. He will be formally remembered on the Tuesday of the New Orleans 45th Session of the Gospel Announcers Guild.
