PPDM Association Volunteers participate in a variety of groups in all three areas of the Association. Volunteers in the Community area participate on Regional Leadership Teams or the Editorial Committee. Volunteers in the International Petroleum Data Standards (IPDS) participate in Committees and Work Groups. The Professional Development area has three groups, the Professional Development Committee (PDC), Certification Committee (PDMCC) and Education Advisory Committee (PEAC).
The PPDM Council of Chairs (P-COC) was formed to ensure excellent communication and collaboration among groups.
