Exporting using multiple containers

We have our Active Directory setup as email enabled security groups to allow each container to be used as an outlook distribution list.

What I need to do is to come up with an export script that will allow me to either export all the containers under one container to a CSV file, or if easier, set up and open query in SQL so that when a user requests a group list, I can return all the attributes for each user in the group.

To give you an example of the structure, it goes as follows

Programs
     |
Leadership Program
      |
Committee/Workgroup Name
      |
User (member of committee)


What is the best approach for this, and where do I put the path of containers in the query syntax?

Your talking about doing an LDAP query to dump to a CSV? Seems like XML would be a better approach as it provides the heirarchial structure that a .csv can't match very well and is easily published to a web page. This could even be a dynamic thing in an ASP/ASPX page to pull the group structure out on page load.
