38th Annual

AGM Conference

Conference Details

DATE: October 19, 2020

After much deliberation and waiting to determine the best offering for our AGM members, due to travel restrictions and local safety protocols, this year’s conference will be a Virtual Mini-Conference on Monday, October 19th.

The format will be very similar to our recent Virtual Lunch & Learn on July 30th with The MLC.  This was a very successful virtual event for us with 72 members tuned in and watching!

We will be offering the Conference for free as three separate one hour sessions:

The Administrators of Gospel Music (AGM) began in 1983 with a two-day conference held at the Shoney’s Inn, Nashville, Tenn. In 2017 we celebrated our 35th annual AGM Conference at Grace Community Church in Brentwood, Tenn. Throughout those years our Conference has offered countless hours of instruction, information, insight, and networking opportunities for our region’s diverse and influential Christian music industry.

The annual AGM Conference offers insightful keynote addresses, helpful breakout sessions, and live worship with top local musicians. Our catered lunches and dinners feature some of the best Nashville cuisine. And our evening networking event brings you together with other industry influencers and leaders.
