Do you want completely made up stories or should I tell you something
about actual organisations that you wouldn't know anything about because
they're too small to even register? Would it make a difference?

I agree. Doing these tasks at all should be avoided if possible. Some
will still have to be done; for these, I'd recommend to contract someone
(whom you pay for a task). That way, our annual statement will clearly
say how much money we have spent on what task, which I consider to be
very desirable, not least because of the transparency vis-a-vis the
members that brings.
