Welcome to the DEC Connection Member Services Center

*Here you can:

Following is detailed info about each topic:

  • Show Your Information

    • complete online profile - you can review your addresses, phone numbers for home, cell and work (unlisted ones are not displayed to other members; nor is your street address), DEC background, updates, photo, etc.

    • Here is a sample FULL profile - note that you can check when your dues are paid thru

    • Here is a sample Short Profile - just information approved for release to other members.  Non-members can't see any of this.


  • Update Your Information

    • update your information - send in new last name, addresses (include street address), phone numbers for home, cell and work (be sure to check box if you don't want it published); primary (the one you login with) and a backup email address.

    • Other text areas are for updates: what are you doing today?  your business website if you wish; etc.

    • Please note that updates may take up to 48 hours to go online - process uses a manual update by webmaster.

    • Photos and publicity and other attachments must be emailed to the webmaster separately - photos should be approximately 100 pixels square, in .jpg, .gif, or .png format. Since it's small, a head shot is best.  If you send a larger photo I will crop the photo for you.

  • Pay Your Dues

    • Renew your Membership online, using either your credit card or a PayPal account.  This is a more convenient option that does not require you to fill out the demographic profile again - you can use the Update form for any changes - and takes you directly to PayPal.

    • To renew by personal check, send check made out to The DEC Connection in care of our treasurer, Nancy Kilty, 33 Forest St. Unit 416, Lexington MA 02421.

  • Get a List of Members

    • 3 ways to list members: long list (you can only see 1 profile at a time); by state; by up to 5 zip code digits - type in as many digits up to 5 that represents your commuting area.  Note: if you ask for list of members in a particular state, any who specified unlisted locations or phone numbers will not show up.  Email addresses are available.

    • We ask that this information be used just for reconnecting with former employees, and not for commercial purposes.

    • This is a terrific way to reach out and make contact with other members in your area!
