Along those same lines, having the meeting every week kinda undermines 
its significance.  Attendance is random, the agenda is very sparse, and 
usually there's at least a few heckles of "can we just skip the meeting?"

Maybe the bylaws (or whatever) could be amended to have the meeting 
twice a month or even just once a month?
