Business meetings are where the officers give their reports, bids on events are proposed and accepted, and any other discussions take place about things that affect the Barony. Business meeting is a good place to go if you want to volunteer, learn details about how the Barony operates, and just generally have an idea of the workings of the group. Afterwards people frequently get together at a restaurant to socialize.
