Festival/Conference 2019 Attendee Registration

Festival/Conference is sponsored by Handbell Musicians of America, Area 1 for the benefit of the members of the Handbell Musicians of America and the members of the ensembles that they direct. Online registration to attend Festival/Conference 2019 is available on this website for each individual attendee. The Attendee Registration will open at 12 PM Eastern Daylight Savings Time, on Saturday, March 16, 2019.  (The Attendee registration was moved to Saturday to facilitate access for those with regular work schedules).

Important Dates:
  • Early-bird Attendee Registration discounts apply through April 30
  • Registration closes on May 15

To prepare to register, please review the Course Offerings at the link in the menu on the left of this page. There you will find a description of all of the conference courses, along with a listing of the session block(s) in which they are offered. For your convenience, we have provided a Course Schedule Worksheet with general attendee registration instructions and a list of all of the course offerings, organized by date and conference session block. We have also provided a Course Selection Form on which you can record your class selections as you prepare to register.

Remember to have your Group Registration Number on-hand before beginning the Attendee registration. If you are registering as part of an ensemble, contact your Group Registrar for this information. If you are registering as a single ringer or attending with a partial ensemble, and would like to be placed as “Orphan” ringers within another group on the Festival floor, you or a member of your group will need to complete the Group Registration and obtain a Group Registration Number before registering as attendees.

Payment will be accepted online on our secure registration site using Visa or Master Card, or by check made payable to Handbell Musicians of America, Area 1, which should be mailed along with a copy of your registration receipt to:
