Join a Group

Some groups require approval by an Admin or the group leader before people are added as members, and some are open for people to sign up at any time. Both types can be joined the same way: click the Join this group button on their group page. Follow the steps below to join either kind of group.

Send a Request to the Leader

Groups requiring approvals are used to keep group sizes limited to a certain number or make sure the right people are signing up for the best group for them.

For these groups, select Join this group on the group page then follow a couple prompts to make sure the leader gets your request.
