I have heard a word before that describes a meeting of 9 people.

It could also be a governing body or syndicate that specifically consists of 9 people.

I can't remember it for the life of me.


There is a word nonumvirate, derived in a similar way to triumvirate:

From Latin triumvīrātus.

  1. A group or association of three, especially three statesmen.


That word is ultimately derived from trium ‎(“of three”) + vir ‎(“man”).
