Agreeing with Mr. Huynh, it is important to know whether this was a special meeting or a regularly scheduled meeting.  If regularly scheduled, such as on the first Monday of every month, every member is presumed to know when the meetings will be held and notice is not necessary per RONR unless required by your own rules. 

As long as the meeting is otherwise proper (properly noticed or a regularly scheduled meeting), it can conduct business and adopt substantive motions as long as  a quorum is present.

If you give us more information, we can probably help you more.

Well, I think what Mr. Huynh is getting at is that notice is sometimes required for regular meetings as well, which is why he asked how the meetings are scheduled.

“The term regular meeting (or stated meeting) refers to the periodic business meeting of a permanent society, local branch, or board, held at weekly, monthly, quarterly, or similar intervals, for which the day (as, "the first Tuesday of each month") should be prescribed by the bylaws and the hour and place should be fixed by a standing rule. If, instead, an organization follows the practice of scheduling the dates of its regular meetings by resolution, notice must be sent to all members in advance of each regular meeting, and the number of days' notice required should be prescribed by the bylaws (p. 576).” (RONR, 11th ed., pg. 89)
