Launched in January 2020 as a community for Association of Desk and Derrick Club (ADDC) members, energy industry professionals (employed and retired), and those interested in the oil, gas, and other energy fields, and their allied industries. This site is a collection of articles about ADDC events, educational programs, clubs and their members, and industry news written by ADDC members with occasional contributions from energy professionals.
The ADDC professional network is comprised of four regions covering Canada and the U.S. Each region has individual clubs with members employed in or retired from various energy companies and allied industries. Cost of membership is only about $75 annually, which includes local, regional, and international membership and access to a number of industry related educational programs, field trips, publications, and opportunity to travel across North America and network with members and leaders within the oil and gas, solar, wind, hydroelectric, and other energy-related industries.
Each region meets annually in the spring and the Association meets annually in September, hosted by a different region each year. The Northeast Region is hosting the 2020 annual convention in Pittsburgh, PA. Find more information on the ADDC website under the Events tab.
ADDC accepts new members January through November 1 each year. New members are welcome to join various committees and run for board of director positions at the local club after their first full year of membership. All ADDC Board positions are a one-year term. More information is found on the Members only side of the ADDC website.
