The following list is a clearinghouse of groups that I compiled while the IOCDF was database was down. I recently revisited it September, 2016 to take out the links that no longer work. Unfortunately, some of the links in the IOCDF revised database are now out of date, but hopefully, someone at the IOCDF can point you in the right direction.
