At the risk of stating the obvious - and I regret to say this will  
probably come across as blunt - the best way of avoiding such  
infighting and hurt feelings is to ensure that one attends those  
meetings. They're members meetings, it's reasonable to expect members  
to show up if at all possible.

The Bylaws very clearly state that *anything* can be brought up, and  
voted upon, at those meetings incidentally.

Are you proposing this should be changed?
