I have creating a website for a networking organization. There are about 30 chapters. I want to be able to list the chapters and then when you click on it you see all the members in the chapter. I also want to be able to search on professions and names.  What is a good wordpress plugin for this. There are alot of plugins but I need one that lets me organize the listings by chapter and lets me do searches.
Thanks

BuddyPress.  It turns WordPress into a social network with group/relationship capabilities and should be able to cover what you do.

Thanks - I was looking at that.  I wasn't sure if I could create groups with members under it.

You can.  It has group functionality built into it and you can also enable bbPress to work hand-in-hand with groups.  

What you probably want in your case is to also create different user roles for each chapter and assign users to the appropriate chapter role, then have group participation be automatic based on role.

It looks like there is no import into buddy press. I have about 700 members I need to import in. Is there a tool out there that does this. Thanks
