To add larger groups of users to a chat room, see Configure categories in Lync Server 2013 and Manage categories in the Deployment documentation. For example, this command adds all the users from the NorthAmericaUsers OU in active Directory to the NorthAmerica chat room:

Set-CsPersistentChatRoom -PersistentChatPoolFqdn "\NorthAmerica" -Members @{Add="OU=NorthAmericaUsers,DC=litwareinc,DC=com"}

His command adds all the members from the Finance distribution group to the same chat room:

Set-CsPersistentChatRoom -PersistentChatPoolFqdn "\NorthAmerica" -Members @{Add="CN=Finance,OU=ExternalUsers,DC=litwareinc,DC=com"}
