Volunteer organizers, PTA leaders, captains, need some help.

Some how I ended up being the captain for my H.S. activity committee (how this happen I don't know, my kids have graduated. ) Anyhoo, I got a whole bunch of folks who said they would just loooove to help and signed up but now won't show up.

Why do people volunteer if they really can't or don't want to do it?

Any way need some tips to motivate those who signed up to follow through.

Basically the committe is responsible for maybe 5 or 6 "events". Jr ring day breakfast, 100 day celebration, homecoming dance, teacher appreciation lunch, senior sports night dinner. stuff like that.

I've offered to hold meetings what ever night is convienent for majority. I've offered tele meetings, sat meetings, sunday meetings. you get my drift. At school, at my house, at starbuks..

I don't want to burn out the ones that chip in regularly. How do you gently nudge the others into helping. I mean they did sign up for it.
