The Dutch Occultation Association was founded in 1946 as one of the world's first associations to promote observations by amateur astronomers of celestial occultation events. DOA now counts over 65 members, of whom some 20 actively observe occultation phenomena. With its annual 'production' of over 400 timed occultation events, the group is among the most active in the world. DOA, or the 'Nederlandse Vereniging van Waarnemers van Sterbedekkingen' as it is known in the Netherlands, is related to the Dutch Meteorological and Astronomical Society  ( Nederlandse Vereniging van Weer- en Sterrenkunde ) . Every year on the last Saturday in April its annual meeting takes place in Roden. It has regular meetings with fellow organizations in Belgium and Germany, and is often represented at the European Symposium on Occultation Projects ( ESOP ). It is also a member of the International Occultation Timing Association - European Section  ( IOTA-ES ).
