What does this new site offer me as an HCEA member?

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.

 

All of these membership benefits are accessed from your Member Profile. To access your Profile, simply click on [View Profile] in the log-in box at the bottom of the menu at left.

 

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?

 

No. HCEA membership requires payment of our annual dues; you can join the HCEA through the Join us pages. Registering to use the site only enables you to use the forums and other features.

 

Let’s work down the menu and see what else is in the new site.

Home page

The home page is pretty self-explanatory, with introductory information and summaries of news stories. Expanded news coverage will appear on our NEWS page.

Instructions and Orientation

This is where we try to explain the terrific amount of information that’s available to you.

Corporate Members

Links to the manufacturers, dealers, contractors, producers and other firms who are very generously supporting the HCEA as Corporate Members.

Media Partners

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 Don’t Sell Equipment or Parts

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.

Chapters

Contact information for our network of chapters in the United States and Canada. Chapter events can be posted to our Chapter Events page.

Contact Us

Contact information for our staff, officers and directors.

Donate!

How to make financial donations, and links to information on donating equipment and parts to the National Construction Equipment Museum and donating materials to our Archives.

Equipment Echoes

Learn about our quarterly educational magazine, which we mail to all members worldwide.

Events

Information on past and future HCEA International Conventions and Old Equipment Expositions, Chapter events and CONEXPO-CON/AGG.

Forums

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.

Join us

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!!

Links

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.

Members

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.

Merchandise Sales

Links to our On Line Store and its wide selection of books, DVDs and collectibles.

Museum and Archives

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.

News

Detailed HCEA news stories will be posted on this page.

Photo Galleries

Along with our Links, the Photo Galleries are back. Categories include:

  • HCEA International Conventions and Old Equipment Expositions;
  • New Photos of Old Equipment that show vintage machinery in the present day;
  • Old Photos of Old Equipment that show the antique iron when it was new;
  • My Favortie Machines, where you post photos of any construction, mining or dredging machinery old or new that you favor,
