Membership

As part of your DCA membership (Regular, Associate Member), basic data, documents and files are made available to you in this area.

These include:

  • All information about the members’ meeting of the association.
  • The DCA Statutes
  • The annual membership certificates
  • The monthly members‘ information
  • The DCA logo

The most important documents for this are available for download at any time (see below).

The members’ meeting of the association takes place once a year, usually at the beginning of the year, traditionally one day before the Oldenburg Pipe Forum in Oldenburg. On this day, the cash audit is also carried out by the elected cash auditors at a tax consultancy firm. After the event, the participants traditionally meet for dinner.

The current version of the DCA statutes is filed in the register of associations at the district court of Mönchengladbach. The German version of the statutes has legal validity. In the statutes of the DCA, the calendar year was defined as the fiscal year.

All members receive a membership certificate at the beginning of the year. The member certificates can be accessed via the member list separately for Regular and Associate Members.

The association’s office sends out monthly circular mails to members, e.g. announcements of events, calls for participation in task groups, etc.. The information sent by email is available for download afterwards.

The DCA logo can be used in various formats for advertising on the company website, in brochures or on masks and devices.

The DCA-Infomap summarizes all important information about the DCA. The flyer on the DCA sponsorship program and the HDD-technology supplement these. Membership applications are also available for download.

DCA Members’ Meeting

DCA Members’ Meeting 2024

The association held this year’s members’ meeting on February 7, 2024 in Oldenburg at the Hotel Patentkrug. The executive secretary of the DCA, Mr. Quante, welcomed around

60 of the 169 member companies (98 participants). As in previous years, the event was held as a hybrid event.

The President, Mr. Stoelinga, welcomed the participants to the members’ meeting, in particular the 18 companies that had been admitted since the last members’ meeting in 2023, and presented the awards for long-standing memberships.

The following companies were honored for 25 years of membership:

Last year the DCA once again organized and participated in a wide range of events, including further training events at the Bohrmeisterschule Celle and in the Netherlands, the Members’ Forum in Aachen, the Trenchless Engineering Conference in Krakow and the Ditch Witch Customer Day in Barcelona. The annual congress – held last year in Leipzig – was also very successful, as evidenced by the large number of participants and the surveys.

The new sponsorship program was very well received; applications for the coveted sponsorship places for the next congress in 2024 should be submitted as soon as possible.

Results from various current DCA projects were presented, including the creation of the 5th edition of the Technical Guidelines, which is expected to be launched in the middle of the year.

The DCA representatives also welcomed a new member to their ranks: Bartek Fratczak from Subsite Electronics will be looking after the Eastern European market.

In the current year the association will also be devoting more attention to the issue of “skills shortages”. This involves the question of how to make the HDD industry more attractive to young people, especially women. In the “Women empowering HDD” project, a network consisting of six women has been meeting since October 2023 to develop specific measures. This includes, for example, a survey that was made available to DCA member companies at the members’ meeting with the aim of identifying key figures, the role of women in the company and any obstacles. The results will be presented at the next annual congress and an action plan will be prepared.

The DCA is also planning to create an HDD image film, which will be produced between the end of March and mid-June and then published on the usual channels. At the same time, a landing page will be created on which, among other things, job offers for interested parties will be placed. The DCA will continue to report here.

Jorn Stoelinga confirmed in office as President

DCA board re-elected

This year’s ordinary members’ meeting of the Drilling Contractors Association (DCA-Europe) took place on Wednesday, 29 th March in Oldenburg’s Hotel Patentkrug. The DCA welcomed over 90 interested participants from a total of 52 member companies. As last year the event took place as a hybrid event i.e. online participation via Zoom was also possible.

The DCA board, headed by President Jorn Stoelinga, was re-elected for the next two years. As before, the members of the board are:

  • Jorn Stoelinga, 1st Chairman
  • Marco Reinhard, 2nd Chairman (Small Scale Drilling)
  • Atef Khemiri, 2nd chairman (Large Scale Drilling)
  • Marc Schnau, 2nd Chairman (Associate Members)
  • Jürgen Muhl, Treasurer
  • Scott Stone, board member
  • Jörg Himmerich, board member
  • Ronald Siebel, board member

After the new election of the board President Jorn Stoelinga gave an overview of the tasks and goals of the association for the 2023/24 business year. In addition to the continuation of current projects, the focus is primarily on the completion of the 5th edition of the Technical Guidelines. The members and the entire HDD industry are expecting the publication of this central building block this year. The DCA will focus on the association’s work here. Other important milestones are the members’ forum on 3rd May in Aachen and the 27th annual congress, which will take place from 4th to 6th October in Leipzig. After the very informative three-hour event, the DCA invited its members to a joint dinner at the Patentkrug.

All in all, it can be said that in recent years the DCA has come a great deal closer to the goal set by President Jorn Stoelinga in 2019: “The DCA should become more European”.
