Request a new organization


Whether you are brand new to CORE and joining a team for the first time, or you are an existing user that wants to change your organization, you may find that a particular organization is not in CORE. If this is the case, you will need to submit a request to add a new organization.


In order to create a new organization in CORE, you must:

  1. Be a public affairs professional who has graduated from the Defense Information School (DINFOS), or with a degree or equivalent professional experience in the fields of marketing, public relations or journalism
  2. Be OPSEC Level II trained
  3. Have release authority for your command or organization

If your request is approved, you will become the primary owner of your organization, making you responsible for all information that is released to the public on behalf of the organization.

While you can delegate permissions to allow other team members to release content, you must ensure that all people who publish information on web pages within the domain have also received OPSEC training, in accordance with AR 530-1.

Request a new organization

When you attempt to join a new team, you will be asked to search for the organization. CORE will auto-suggest options that match your search term, based on the current Organization Directory.

If your organization is not available in this list, please send an email to the CORE Support Team to request a new organization and include the following information:

  • Requested organization name
  • Component type: Active Duty, National Guard, or Army Reserve
  • Your contact information (phone number and/or email address)

A member of the CORE Support Team will contact you to coordinate this request.

TIP: Before requesting a new organization, it is a good idea to search the My Organization for a comprehensive list of all Army commands, units and organizations within CORE. Consider contributing content to an existing team with your higher headquarters.

Our support team is here for you.
