Apart from the initial error, this responds to the 'core' of the
second half of the comments ...

There is one central issue here, IMV -- resources.

The two aspects being: (1) securing them, and (2) prioritizing their use.

If there are no resources, then nothing will happen. Once (some)
resources exist, it is necessary to determine what the priorities are.

If there is $1000, it is possible to arrange for a $1000 banquet
after the concert, but, there will be no concert.

All artist groups always need more assistance. The CEC, SEAMUS, SAN,
ACMA, ICMA etc etc run on the thin edge of volunteers being prepared
to 'reallocate' their (own) resources in order to do things for
others. Often members of the Boards of the CEC, SAN, SEAMUS give of
time to make something happen for the association, and it comes out
of their time that would have been spent in the studio, cleaning
their house, playing with their children, looking after a disabled
relative, volunteering to organize a party in a nursing home ...

The most valuable words (administrative) members of associations like
to here are: "I will ...". The most feared ones are "Someone should
...".
