Add bulk users to Distribution Group using Powershell Cmdlet

I need to add about 100 users to a distribution group in my Exchange 2010 organization. The users are in a csv file. What is the power shell command to use to import these users?

Thanks!!

import-csv c:\users.csv | foreach-object { add-distributiongroupmember <group> -member $_.name }

where name is the column header

I'm not sure of the columns in my csv file. Would you happen to know the column fields to provide for my csv?
post the header row and i can tell you what to use
emailaddress  firstname  lastname displayname
import-csv c:\users.csv | foreach-object { add-distributiongroupmember <group> -member $_.emailaddress }

or

import-csv c:\users.csv | foreach-object { add-distributiongroupmember <group> -member $_.displayname }

Since I'm dealing specifically with Dynamic Distribution Groups, the problem I'm having is the cmdlet is not accepting add-dynamicdistributiongroupMember. Should I not able to substitute this command?
