D. What constitutes a meeting subject to the law.

            When a quorum of the members of a public body meet to consider and discuss public business, it is a “meeting” within meaning of Open Meetings Act (OMA). Nicholas v. Meridian Charter Tp. Bd., 239 Mich.App. 525, 609 N.W.2d 574 (2000). However, a chance gathering of members of public body, during which members do not engage in deliberations or render decisions, is not a “meeting,” and thus is not subject to requirements of the OMA. Ryant v. Cleveland Township, 239 Mich.App. 430, 608 N.W.2d 101 (2000).
