We have dist groups setup in exch 2013 and we need to know if there is a way to limit only certain users the ability to send emails to these distribution group?
Like for instance we have dist group that goes to all employees but we don't want all employees to be able to send emails to the distribution group

Hi,

Refer to this article and read "delivery management" section.
It would be good to go through complete article to understand distribution group management

Hello,

In Exchange 2010 you can select distribution group in Management Console and then Mail Flow Settings tab then Message Delivery Restrictions.  Not sure if 2013 has same menu.

Ok I followed the article but now my question is, if you need to add new users to these distribution groups, like say 20 new users, is there an automated way to add them or do you have to add them one at a time?

for bulk management use powershell.
check basics here
You can also use Dynamic distribution group which can be based on an attribute of user account e.g., OU, department, etc.
If the Distribution group is for all users within the organization, use a dynamic distribution group. Refer to article here for better understanding.
