+1 for the forethought on the hierarchy.  :-) Convention over configuration.

It's not a huge amount of effort, but the event would fall under Toronto PerlMongers anyway.  The beauty of orgs is that you can establish different teams.  So, if the event requires us to give special rights to people outside of TPM, you just set up a team for the event, a team of the web site etc.  This way you're managing one account with many teams rather than many accounts with individual teams.  Each project within the org has its own wiki etc.  I think the hierarchy makes sense:

TPM -> web site
         -> Freshwater::Perl
         -> Other projects, hackathons etc
