On the more formalized side, I have wondered about maybe two meetings. One for board and club business that is actually scheduled. Members can attend if they are going to participate in the meeting. Then let the club itself work out the social meetings each month, those would be for the interactions and brew feedback and such. <shrug>

This is a good option, too.

I was hearing overtones of control from your perspective, as you put it, your 'OCD.' That may be part of the problem. Separating the meetings may help you to know to not worry about the 'social' meetings, let them go however they go. Make the business meetings the ones that have agendas and such.

I think giving the options to the club is a good idea, too. Said another way, describe what you see as issues and say that there are a few ways to go to fix the problems. But, given the dysfunction that I see in how meetings go, it may not work out that you get resolution.

Good luck with it!
