The PMRC has been supported as an industrial cooperative since its inception. Annual dues are paid by members to support the operation of the Cooperative by the Biometrics faculty and staff of the Warnell School of Forestry via the UGA Research Foundation. The members in turn, guide the direction of the research endeavors of the PMRC through votes on the PMRC Advisory Committee. Day-to-day management is performed by UGA personnel while PMRC policy and mission is overseen by the PMRC Executive Committee.
