Stakeholders conflicting priorities

Stakeholders frequently serve in more than one project committee as well as have “day jobs” with their regular work duties. They are overloaded with information and receive way too many meeting invitations. How do you effectively engage stakeholders to allow them to contribute effectively to the project as well as to provide necessary support securing project prioritization with the C-suite.
I track stakeholders meetings attendance. And, if a stakeholder missed a meeting, I follow up with the quick call or stop by if he/she is on site. I provide short update about the meeting and make asks/requests or ask for input. What do you do? How do you engage stakeholders and secure their project support.
