    Does the meeting belong to the parents in some sense, or is it merely composed of them? – Dan Bron Aug 29 '15 at 18:03
  • its composed of them with a non-parent leader – Dianne Aug 30 '15 at 2:43

I think that if you want to be very correct, use the apostrophe. But if you get the vibes that the apostrophe might put some of the parents off, it's okay to leave it out.
