1. Have an agenda and stick to it.
2. Be ready to say "let's take this off-line".
3. Document everything, and send around meeting notes.
a. If done right, this may have even stopped your boss from wanting to sit in in the first place.
4. Finally be open to listening what your boss wants, and don't forget that they are the boss.

Be prepared, that last point is probably going to be the hardest one for you to follow.

You made mention that the is more management than programming, the fact is the best programmers not only have good technical skills, they also have good soft skills such as managing people, and that goes both ways.
