I have no idea how to do that - Any ideas?
BTW - I'm not yet using AJAX
You need to be using Ajax (probably via RJS). Put the drop-down in a <div> and re-render it after you're done entering the new Org record.
To learn RJS, I strongly recommend Cody Fauser's "RJS Templates" PDF from O'Reilly. One of the best $10 I ever spent to learn a new programming tool / technique.
