How do I join a Group?
Upon creating a profile, individuals are immediately asked to select the groups they are interested in joining. Some groups, such as Chapters and Workgroups, are private and require approval by the groups’ administrators to join. Others, such as some Community Groups, are open for any member to join without approval. To manage group preferences and to view the groups you are currently a member of, select “Groups” under the “My Profile” control panel.
Individuals can also request to join groups individually by visiting the respective Group page under the “Groups” dropdown menu on the ISDS website. Additionally, the “Find A Group” page provides a searchable listing of all of the Groups by their Group Type. An icon labeled “Request Membership” or “Join Group” should appear just below the page title for the member to click if they are not already a part of the group.
