How to create a gaming group?

I know it has been mentioned in the past on the forums that groups of individuals could create a gaming group to run events under.  I don't remember how to do this and I haven't found the information on the GenCon website so far.  If someone could tell me how or point me in the right direction on where I could find this information that would be great. Thank you!

When you submit an event, there's a Gaming Group blank.  Put the name of your group there.  That's it.

If your group has multiple GMs, typically you'd have one person (the Event Organizer, or EO) submit all of the group's events so they all have the same group name and primary contact.  The event form has a spot to put the email addresses of the GMs so those are recorded properly.

That is much easier than I thought it would be.  Thank you.

Very easy process, fast and love the ability to duplicate events to just make time changes for GMs. 
One of my GMs no longer uses the email on their listed account and they can not long into the account due to forgotten password what can they do?

If someone can't access their account, have them contact customerservice@gencon.com.

Each year I keep doing things wrong. Been running events at Gen Con for several years and everyone talks about the GM badge. Is that a thing? If so I can't seem to find out what it entails or where to go to register for such a thing. Can someone let me know. Thanks.

Also, to be clear, you can be a gaming group of one; you just have to decide on a group name and add it to your event listings.  Do review the EHP, as noted above, but there's no process you have to go through to register your gaming group or anything like that.
