Access to exclusive events - Members get exclusive access to MBGEHR's annual Spring Ring festival, Canada's Ringing Link festival and the International Handbell Symposium. Members also can participate in local workshops and read and ring clinics.
Handbell News - Through newsletters and special mailings, we share handbell news and events with other members. The MBGEHR newsletter, Ringers Roundtable, is mailed to all members three times a year in the fall, winter and spring.
Discounts on Special Events - Members receive special pricing for all MBGEHR handbell events. Each year, we will have a spring event and a fall event. Events can be workshops (for directors and ringers), read and ring sessions or massed choir ringing. It is also a great opportunity to meet other ringers and directors from around the province.
Networking - We can help you get in touch with ringers, directors, composers, manufacturers, and retailers from around the country and around the world.
Voting Privileges - Each member is entitled to vote during the Annual General Membership Meeting, and may petition for changes to the Guild Bylaws. Members may also attend other meetings of the Executive Committee, if desired.
Lending Library - members have exclusive access to a sharing library of handbell music and resources. This is a great way to try out a piece of music with your choir before buying, or to simply exchange for the season to reduce costs.
