Using the new HCEA website
Welcome to the new website of the Historical Construction Equipment Association! If you are not familiar with what we now offer, please take a moment to take this quick tour.
The new site enables HCEA members to do a number of things that we’ve never before offered on line:
• You can use your profile to check your membership status, next renewal date, and history of payments;
• You can renew your membership online;
• Instead of having to call the office or risk missing your magazine, you can update your profile if your mailing address, phone number and e-mail address have changed;
• You can choose to have your membership automatically renewed on a credit card;
• You will receive automatic e-mail reminders to renew;
• You can make direct donations to the HCEA;
• You can change any of these options at your discretion; and,
• You will receive, on rare occasion, e-mails from us with important news and merchandise sale information. (We promise not to abuse your e-mail, or to divulge it to others.)
The membership functions have been transferred to this site from our online store.
As you will see, we now offer an expanded set of forums. Also, for the first time in years, we also have an extensive collection of links and a photo gallery.
Does registering to use the site make me an HCEA member?
Let’s work down the menu and see what else is in the new site.
The home page is pretty self-explanatory, with introductory information and summaries of news stories. Expanded news coverage will appear on our NEWS page.
This is where we try to explain the terrific amount of information that’s available to you.
Links to the manufacturers, dealers, contractors, producers and other firms who are very generously supporting the HCEA as Corporate Members.
These are the members of the construction, mining, dredging and heavy equipment industries who graciously promote the HCEA through publication of press releases, news stories, complimentary advertising, and links.
We get almost daily requests for quotations on everything from machinery and parts to dredging services. This page explains what we do and don’t do.
Contact information for our network of chapters in the United States and Canada. Chapter events can be posted to our Chapter Events page.
Contact information for our staff, officers and directors.
Learn about our quarterly educational magazine, which we mail to all members worldwide.
Information on past and future HCEA International Conventions and Old Equipment Expositions, Chapter events and CONEXPO-CON/AGG.
Along with new incarnations of our old Buy/Sell/Trade, Information and Yackity-Yak (now renamed General Discussion) forums, we’ve added a new forum for Shows and Events information. These new forums do operate differently from the old ones, so please read the How to use the new forums page before digging in.
Here is where you go to join the HCEA or buy a membership for someone else. We offer a number of membership options; if you’re not a member, come on aboard!!
In an earlier incarnation, our website had over 600 links to sites covering a tremendous array of equipment-related subjects. We’re proud to announce that the links are back, and this time you can browse either by subject or website name.
Pages under this heading are accessible only to HCEA members. It includes a searchable membership directory, and over time other members-only content will be added.
Links to our On Line Store and its wide selection of books, DVDs and collectibles.
These pages provide information about the National Construction Equipment Museum and Archives, which we operate at our headquarters in Bowling Green, Ohio. You will find a list of our equipment, information on visiting and donating, an overview of Archives collections, how to use the Archives collections, sales of surplus Archives holdings, and a presentation on our expansion campaign.
Detailed HCEA news stories will be posted on this page.
Along with our Links, the Photo Galleries are back. Categories include:
