The wait is over and the proposed new look for the organization has been revealed. AGEHR will be the Handbell Musicians of America. A big part of the new direction being undertaken by the Guild is to recognize ourselves as musicians to be taken seriously by the music world at large. The fabulous concerts at this year’s Pinnacle have proven that we hold a solid place as musicians to be respected. And the name of the organization will reflect that attitude. More information about the exciting new future for our art and our organization will appear on these pages (this blog) as the news evolves.
Can you believe it?? In just 10 days we will officially rebrand to Handbell Musicians of America. HOW EXCITING IS THAT!!! This is really an exciting time here in the national office and for our Area Leaders as we focus on the final details and touches to make this transition complete for the October 1, 2011 deadline.
Be sure to tell us what you think and how you are preparing for the big transition here and on our Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/AGEHRInc?ref=ts.
