I agreed to co-chair the PTO next year and my cc is already driving me crazy with her disorganization. Help!

You might want to bring that question over to www.ptotoday.com, which specializes in all the many challenges (and occasional joys?) of leading a PTO.
As a relatively disorganized PTO leader myself, can you guys be complementary. Does your co-chair have other skills that are great? And perhaps you can pick up the slack on the organization front. Teamwork.

I also have found that email is a great way to cut down on the friction... so you get things organized with your check list and documents etc. and then instead of having a lot of meetings to discuss plans - do it thru email.
