The CPC is a volunteer organization with secretarial support provided by the U.S. Geological Survey, International Geology Program, and the institutes, organizations and agencies that the Officers and Directors belong to. The Council’s most valuable resource is the Directors and Officers who bring to the table considerable professional expertise and support. Through virtually no overhead the Council can apply funds it receives directly to a problem or task it has been requested to accomplish.

The Council maintains a limited supply of its Circum-Pacific Map Projects maps, which can be supplied upon request. However, some of the maps listed may be out of print at the time of a request. No plans are in place to reprint these maps, however, the CPC in conjunction with the American Association of Petroleum Geologists (AAPG) has been engaged in electronically scanning the maps; interested parties are encouraged to contact the AAPG in regard to electronic availability of CPC maps (
