Organization Management

This list shows the organizations with which you are registered. A badge with a star next to an organization badge indicates that you are an Admin for that organization. Pending organizations will be listed but greyed-out with the text "(Pending)" until the registration request has been approved.

    If you are an administrator for the removed organization, then:
