What makes a Known World event different from every other event?  It's got
the name "Known World" in the title, marking it as something "approved" by
the Society on the Society level. The only way to pose as a KW event is to
put the words Known World in the title. Every event is open to every member
of the society, and there is no reason not to advertise and invite folks
from far and wide for a weekend symposium sponsored by a kingdom or local
group. If a Society officer is telling you otherwise, you should have a
firm discussion with their ombudsman.
