Find an ABA Chapter Near You!

ABA members discussing bells at an ABA conventionInteraction with others is what makes membership exciting, educational and enriching. All groups host meetings at least two times a year while others meet as often as once a month. We encourage you to seek out a chapter near you because learning about your bells will be much more enjoyable with the ability to share and exchange of information by personal contact. Several ABA members belong to more than one chapter.

Not every state or country has a local group, but individual members can also be found throughout the United States and Canada as well as in Australia, Belgium, China, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Malaysia, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Russia, South Korea, Switzerland, Turkey, Ukraine, and the United Kingdom. We welcome the organization of new chapters and have guidelines for how to do that.

Listed below are the ABA chapters including those in Australia, British Isles, Canada, Japan, and the United States.
