Oh there's no structuring in this case - it's blatant. You have to raise $X to get on committee Y, and if you don't, you don't get the assignment.|
The law in this case is extremely broad; any influence in the performance of an official act (and the assignment of committees and seats thereupon certainly is an official act) is a violation if anything of value is exchanged for it irrespective of who the thing of value goes to. That the people making the assignments don't get the funds doesn't matter.
