The DPC Chair coordinates activities with Dr Simon Hodson, the Executive Director of CODATA, and reports directly to the CODATA Executive Committee. The DCP Chair is also an ex officio member of the CODATA Executive Committee. As for other members of the Executive Committee, CODATA funds travel for the Chair to the annual meetings of that body.
