Our bylaws require us to have a meeting of our membership in the even numbered years. This is usually held in conjunction with our biennial conference. However, we were unable to hold a conference this year, so we will be having our meeting in conjunction with the Northern California Director's Workshop.
All members of Area 12 are invited to attend this membership meeting. We will be discussing the health of our area and upcoming events, and taking feedback from members on what they would like to see us doing. Please join us at Walnut Creek UMC to be a part of this.
Never stood in front of a group but think you might in the future?
You're a ringer who wants to know what goes on in your director's head?
Been directing for a few years and want some more resources?
Been directing FOREVER but you know you gotta keep learning?
Want to get Handbell Certification but not sure you're ready for the conducting section?
That's right, this is for YOU!
The curriculum is based on the requirements for Level I Certification in Conducting and is built to be flexible to allow the clinicians to really give each participant the ability to grow from wherever they are.
We will work with score study, rehearsal techniques, and conducting. All participants will be encouraged to conduct so they can get feedback.
