I don't think anyone has a problem with you chairing the meeting. You do understand that the Chair is in the position of leading the meeting, not dominating it, right? You must listen to what's being said, by all sides present, pay attention to others that want to say something, and attempt to be as fair as possible to all members present.
Nothing to it. You just have to figure out how do deal with 50 different personalities, with 25 different ideas to discuss, and do it without anyone complaining that you were playing favorites.
I'm happy to see how you handle a meeting.
