National Seminar

Welcome to Handbell Musicians of America National Seminar 2020 from the members of the Handbell Industry Council!


The Handbell Industry Council (HIC) represents handbell manufacturers, retailers, publishers, educators, performers, and other organizations that support handbell musicians. We hope National Seminar will be filled with wonderful opportunities to ring, learn, network with others, discover resources, and form new friendships.

Looking for some fun Sunday night? The Handbell Industry Council Happy Hour Shopathon is the place to be. Shop! Visit! Shop some more! Enjoy a cash bar and snacks. Win prizes!


Be sure to visit the HIC Exhibit Area

  • a great gathering place
  • browse and purchase products and services
  • tables and chairs where you can eat, visit, relax, and network
  • Grab-and-go food options for breakfast and lunch offered just outside the entrance to the exhibits
  • random prize drawings during the posted shopping times. You must be present to win. Complete the four prize drawing slips (one for each day/available at the Welcome Reception) and drop them in the daily prize drawing boxes located in the From the Top Music booth.

Don’t miss the Handbell Industry Showcases – informative presentations and reading sessions featuring Handbell Industry Council member products, publications, and services.
