    I think you are grouping the words incorrectly. You appear to have "discussion" tied to "meeting". I think "discussion" is tied to "specialist".

    There are two types of meetings: Specialist Discussion and Ordinary. The former type discusses higher level topics that are aimed at specialists in a particular field. The latter type discusses lower level topics that would be of interest to more of the general membership.
