About the Digital Preservation Coalition
The Digital Preservation Coalition (DPC) is a registered company (Registered no: 4492292) and charity (Charity no. SC051077).
We are a membership organisation, managed by a small team of full time staff and overseen by a Board of Directors appointed from our Full Members. Our primary function is to deliver on behalf of our members. We were established in 2002 as a collaboration between a number of agencies operating in the UK and Ireland. Although our program and our membership has changed a lot since 2002, we remain true to the founding principles of community oversight described in our Articles of Association and Memorandum of Incorporation. The majority of our income is still derived from the annual subscriptions which members pay: and our workplan is scrutinised and approved by our members annually.
