serial meeting
 n.— «Briefly, “serial meeting” is the label used to describe the situation in which a government board will hold a series of meetings attended by less than a quorum of members to discuss a public issue in private. Although it was a clear and intentional violation of the spirit of state open meetings laws, the practice was determined in court to not be a violation of the letter of the law.» —“Open government” Courier & Press (Evansville, Indiana) July 1, 2007.
