Can a governing body meet behind closed doors to discuss "personnel matters?"

When a governing body excludes the public from a meeting, it is holding an "executive session." A governing body can only meet in executive session under a few circumstances and must post a notice stating the precise reason or reasons the body is meeting in an executive session. The notice cannot just indicate "personnel matters" are being discussed because that is not a precise reason allowed by the law.
