Attending an Event as a Member As i recently worked to update our discovering your membership pages, I was struck by the number of event we now offer and, as we often say, there is truly something for everyone. Six years ago, I wrote my column about attending an event not as an employee but as a member. I’d like to share that column with you again here.

Seeking Inclusion In thinking about the issue of diversity in the handbell community, you may have asked yourself the same questions I’ve been wondering. Are we diverse? If not, why not? And how do we become more diverse?

Never Underestimate Your Influence As a handbell director, your span of influence can go way beyond bells. My first handbell director taught me to ring, but she also taught me to care for the bells and care for other ringers. She introduced the power of a group and revealed to us what a bunch of junior high kids could do if we just showed up and paid attention.
