The procedures manual is what sets out the order (agenda) and conduct of the meeting. The meeting is governed by Robert's Rules of Order per this manual.

What are Robert's Rules of Order?
Side note: when visiting New Bedford this summer, I found out that Captain Henry Martyn Roberts had been assigned there to build Fort Rodman (now called Fort Tabor Park) to protect the entrance to the harbor. It was while stationed there, he conducted a meeting and lost control of it. He went home that night to write down the process so that wouldn't happen the next time. These parliamentary procedures are what we know and use today as Robert's Rules of Order.
