A note from Lorrie Hart, Area 11 Chair-elect:
As we move into the fall season, I wanted to take this opportunity to remind you to make sure your Handbell Musicians of America membership has been renewed if it’s due! I know sometimes reminders come over the summer and if you’re not in the office during that time, the reminder may get overlooked. HMA continues to try to provide more membership benefits that people want—in particular the last membership chat focuses on use of handbells in contemporary worship with Brenda Austin. I was able to attend a class she gave, and she has many very practical suggestions and wonderful ideas. So be sure to check that out. It’s free to members.
Also as you start your handbell group this fall, don’t forget there are classes you can take online in the virtual academy section of the website for a nominal fee to improve your ringing. Perhaps you have a couple of people that want to learn 4 in hand ringing, or maybe the whole group wants to work on improving musicianship. Both of those classes are available!
Finally, don’t forget to refer a friend and earn handbell bucks if they become a member. These handbell bucks are good to use with events and purchases on the website!
If you have any questions about membership renewals or new memberships, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and happy ringing this year!
There are so many wonderful benefits associated with membership in Handbell Musicians of America. The National Handbell Musicians of America website is filled with terrific things that are only available for members.
