A random survey on 1,500 participants that volunteered to be part of the performing management team was conducted with a net response rate of 47.27%. The result showed that motivation and commitment factors, as well as commitment and selfsatisfaction have a significant (positive) relationship and effect on volunteers’ participation. Meanwhile, the result depicts that there was no significant differences in motivation among the volunteers with different demographic profile except for gender, race and religion. Based on these findings, it is hoped that this study will further enhance knowledge in the human resources field and training. With respect to volunteers’ commitment to be involved in an event, awareness towards quality enhancement and cost reduction through the use of the volunteers is hoped to be able to geared future volunteers’ programmes towards the development of a better planning, implementation, and evaluation process.
