The Early Day Gas Engine & Tractor Association, Inc. is a national organization whose purpose is to stimulate interest in collecting, restoring, preserving and exhibiting gasoline and oil engines, gas and steam tractors, power driven farm machinery and any other equipment of historical value.

The national association is governed by three national officers elected by the membership, and is composed of many local branches (clubs) scattered throughout the United States.

Each local branch has its own set of officers and functions independently in its own area.

Membership is obtained through the local branch and active participation is encouraged. A membership in one branch entitles the member to exhibit his engine or tractor with a welcome feeling at any other branch, regardless of location.

The national association is supported through a small annual membership, payable by each branch.
