    • In the “Organization Type” dropdown menu, select the type of Organization.

    • In the “Search (like)” field, you can type keywords to narrow down the list of Organizations. The search is not case-sensitive.

    • In the “Search (like)” field, you can type a keyword to search. You no longer have to use the wild card % to search. *Hint: If you don’t know the exact name, you can type in a short word or use the “%” character as a wild card to search for individual words. For example:

      • Arc or %Arc% will search for any Organization names with words that contain “arc” (i.e. The Arc of Massachusetts and Human Services Research Institute)

      • School (space before School) will search for any Organization names that end with the word “School” (i.e. UMass Medical School)

      • Disability or Disability % (space after Disability) will search for any Organization names that begin with the word “Disability” (i.e. Disability Law Center)

    • Once you have completed setting the search filters, click "Apply filters" to update the Organization list with entries that meet the search criteria.

    *Hint: When you attempt to join an Organization, an e-mail is sent to that Organization, and the Administrator at that Organization must approve your account.

Each Organization has at least one Administrator who is responsible for setting the access for other Users in their Organization.
