A: You will want to consult with Articles of Incorporation and the Bylaws to know whether this was permitted. The law only says that "regular" meetings of the board "may be held without notice of the date, time, place or purpose of the meeting" unless the articles or bylaws have a different requirement. For "special meetings" of the board, the directors must "be preceded by at least two (2) days' notice of the date, time and place of the meeting. The notice need not describe the purpose of the special meeting unless required by the articles of incorporation or bylaws."

So, regardless of whether this was called as a "regular" meeting of the board or a "special" meeting, the law allows the persons calling the meeting to not give notice about the purpose of the meeting unless the articles or bylaws say that they are required to provide notice.
