William K. Lane, III, Franklin, Tennessee, for the appellant, Benefit Consulting Alliance, LLC.

Attorneys 2:

Carol M. Joiner, Clarksville, Tennessee, for the appellees, Clarksville Montgomery County School System, et al.

Judge(s): COTTRELL

Consulting group that served as the agent of record for a trust established to provide insurance to employees of a county school system filed a complaint alleging a violation of the Open Meetings Act when a group of trustees met for lunch with one of the consulting group’s employees and later changed the school system’s agent of record when the employee formed a different association with another company. The trial court found that no violation of the Open Meetings Act occurred at the lunch meeting because no decision was made during the lunch. We affirm the trial court’s judgment.
