If it's that bad, I'd do: - find adults to volunteer to take on committee roles - advancement chair, activities chair, membership chair, etc.  Get them to officially take those roles. - once they have those roles, have them meet monthly with the CC.  If the CC doesn't call a meeting, just have them do their job anyways. A committee meeting is really just a place for committee members to provide reports and status.   If you don't have a meeting these folks can still do their jobs.
