As a non-VisCom'er I have a bit of a concern with:


It is not uncommon that people will approach me about an event, or an event
will come to my attention and I would like to refer the event to VisCom for
consideration.  However, I don't want to become the event owner.  I just want
it queued for *consideration* by VisCom.

How should that work?  Is there a way for me to refer things without taking on
substantial responsibility?
