This site represents handbell ringers from Delaware, Maryland, Washington, D.C., Virginia, and North Carolina. Our organization promotes the musical art of handbell ringing.
Area 3 will verify participation towards Continuing Professional Development (CPD) units for specific classes, hands-on experience and leadership seminars. If you have a pre-approved personal professional development plan in place that includes Area 3, please contact Debbie Henning, Coordinator of Events, by email or call her at (410) 848-5482 at least 2 weeks prior to the event to arrange for a CPD Certificate to be issued.
