    "in" would be more common, and either would probably be understood to mean 'we want to hold' a meeting in February.
    But there is some ambiguity, because one could schedule a meeting in February to be held in March or later.


    'We want to schedule a meeting for February of this year.' is clearer; the meeting will (be held)(take place) in February.
