What is a meeting?

 A meeting is defined as a gathering of a majority of a governing body of a public agency for purposes of taking official action upon public business. Not all meetings held by the government are subject to the Open Door Law. A governing body most often is a board or commission, like the local school board or county commissioners, to name two examples. Meetings involving staff members of public agencies are not generally required to be open to the public. For more information about what constitutes a governing body, see pages 6-7 of the Handbook on Indiana's Public Access Laws at www.in.gov/pac.
