but everything has pros and cons
It can be so different from place to place and school to school. Some schools have a "booster club" that handles the fund raising...leaving the PTO to handle the other more important things. Some PTO's are the fundraisers and break up into committees based on their different fund raising events.
Yes, you will see many of the same faces. Some are committed volunteers who live at school (or so it seems) , others work full time and PTO evening meetings seem like the only way to do their part.
Go to a handful of meetings with an open head and open heart. Take a buddy for confidence. Introduce yourself and get involved if you can.
