|Who We Are|
Distribution Contractors Association is a 501 (c) 6 non-profit, professional trade organization formed in 1961 to facilitate the exchange of information related to the construction and maintenance of gas distribution pipeline systems throughout the United States. Our members over the years have evolved into turnkey utility contractors that operate at all levels of utility construction and directional drilling.
DCA maintains the reputation of a tight-knit family. By contributing their time, experience and insights, in developing new ideas, techniques and equipment, members add greatly to the value of the association.
The origins on the Distribution Contractors Association can be traced far beyond the association’s first annual convention February 5-7, 1962. Founders of the association had been getting together informally fin 1960, and the association was actually chartered in August 1961.
The issues that the association was formed to deal with were around long before 1961, as well. Natural gas distribution contractors had no voice with the gas industry. In addition, these contractors were not recognized by national labor unions and had to renegotiate contracts with locals every time crews entered a new jurisdictional area....View History
