The hardest thing to do is get all your parents together at one time. It
is not necessary to accomplish your goals, but it helps. Once you have
them together (or you work on them one at a time there are arguments both
ways) you need to convince them that if EVERYONE HELPS, noone will have to
do much. Mothers with lots of little children at home can make phone
calls. Others can organize the annual fund raising, etc...
Use resource sheets to try and match people with work they will enjoy
doing. If you have someone who loves to talk, get them the phone committee
job. (The others may hate you for that, but...)
The troop committee book published by BSA has some good ideas as well. One
of the keys I beleive is giving them a little job that they will enjoy
doing. Some will then come back and ask for more to do!
