* A note of clarification: Many of the organizational plate displays have a column marked "PLATES AVAILABLE TO PUBLIC?".  With most colleges, universities and fire companies, you must be an alumni or an active member to get a plate, therefore many are marked NO as not being available to the public.  On the other hand, many of the fraternal and non-profit groups quite happy to sell you a plate, but with some they do require that you pay a fee to join  the organization and another fee to get a plate.  So 'YES' may require additional costs.
