The American Bell Association International, Inc. is a friendly group of bell collectors of all ages, youth to senior, who enjoy collecting and learning about bells.

Bell collectors are intrigued by the appearance, sound and history of bells. Bell collections vary depending on member interest: brass bells, bronze bells, ceramic bells, glass bells, crystal bells, porcelain bells, wood bells-- all types of bells.

The "V for Victory" bells were cast with metal from German aircraft shot down over Britain during WWII.

Some have expanded their collections to include other things related to bells; pictures, plates, ashtrays, jars, containers, jewelry, poetry, history, cake pans and more.

Some are dealers, engaged in buying and selling. Manufacturers of bells are members, as is their sales and service staff. Change ringers are included-- they might not own a single bell, but certainly are intimately familiar with the rope end of a set of bells. Carillonneurs are also found among ABA members.

The American Bell Association, founded in 1940, is a non-profit organization of nearly 1,500 members located in the United States and other countries. The organization's purpose is to further knowledge of bells among it's membership through magazines articles, books, workshops and exhibits of different bell collections. Such programs are presented at local Chapter meetings, Regional meetings, and at an Annual Convention.
