Welcome to the Home of the National EDGETA (Early Day Gas Engine and Tractor Association)

The North Central Director, South Central Director and Director at Large positions are open for election at the annual meeting June 29, 2018.  Resumes for anyone interested in either position must get their resumes to Carrie Jo Parmley ([email protected]) no later than March 30, 2018.

The Early Day Gas Engine and Tractor Association (E.D.G.E. & T.A.) was formed in 1957 and is a national organization whose purpose is to stimulate interest in collecting, restoring, preserving, and exhibiting gasoline and oil engines, gas/diesel and steam tractors, power driven farm machinery and any other equipment of historical value. Individual membership is only available through the local branches and contacts to these branches are given under the”Branch Locations” section of this site.

The National Association is governed by seven directors elected on a rotating basis. The seven directors then choose a President, Vice President, and Secretary/Treasurer from within the Board of Directors with the exception of the Secretary/Treasurer who can be appointed from outside the board per the bylaws.

It is no longer an insurance requirement to report your event to have insurance coverage.  However, the EDGETA National Board of Directors strongly encourages you to report your events, so they are added to the Branch Event Calendar.   This will publicize your show or event for other branches to see.  It also gives the National Directors and Advisors a way to keep track of branch activities.
