You can create a new organization by either setting up a new organization or converting an existing personal account into an organization.

About organizations

Organizations are shared accounts where businesses and open-source projects can collaborate across many projects at once. Owners and administrators can manage member access to the organization's data and projects with sophisticated security and administrative features.

Creating a new organization from scratch

Create an organization to apply fine-grained access permissions to repositories.

Converting a user into an organization

You can convert your user account into an organization. This allows more granular permissions for repositories that belong to the organization.

Permission levels for an organization

After you create an organization, you should give Owner permissions to a small group of people who will manage the organization account.

Inviting users to join your organization

You can invite anyone to become a member of your organization using their GitHub username or email address.

Canceling or editing an invitation to join your organization

Organization owners can edit or cancel an invitation to become a member of your organization any time before the user accepts.

Removing a member from your organization

If members of your organization no longer require to any repositories owned by the organization, you can remove them from the organization.

Reinstating a former member of your organization

You can invite former organization members to rejoin your organization, and choose whether to restore the person's former role, access permissions, forks, and settings.

Adding a billing manager to your organization

A billing manager is a user who manages the billing settings for your organization, such as updating payment information. This is a great option if regular members of your organization don't typically have access to billing resources.

Removing a billing manager from your organization

If a person with the billing manager role no longer needs to view or change your organization's billing information, you can remove their access to the organization.

Can I create accounts for people in my organization?

While you can add users to an organization you've created, you can't create personal user accounts on behalf of another person.
