I've done this in the past, and even got help with it here.  The difference, in this case, is that before the group name within the LDAP path was designated as OU=GroupName. The group I'm working with now is CN=GroupName.

It would follow that I could just change the existing code to CN=GroupName and that would fix it but the drop down list isn't populating. I'm hoping it's something trivial that I missed.

Thanks!!
Public Sub FillDropdown()
        Dim ldapPath As String = "LDAP://CN=GroupName,DC=Departments,DC=ad,DC=domain,DC=com"
        Dim de As New DirectoryEntry(ldapPath)
        Dim ds As New DirectorySearcher(de)
        ds.PageSize = 1000
        ds.Filter = "(objectCategory=User)"

        Dim colUsers As ArrayList
        colUsers = New ArrayList
        Dim result As SearchResult

        For Each result In ds.FindAll()
            colUsers.Add(result.Properties("cn")(0))
        Next result
        colUsers.Sort()
        DropDownList1.DataSource = colUsers
        DropDownList1.DataBind()
        de.Dispose()
    End Sub
