    I hear what @Scott hears, that the OP is asking about activism, not the open agendas of meetings. More like angling, jockeying, politicizing, planning behind the scenes, and conniving for hidden agendas. Commented Aug 7, 2017 at 3:44

You might hear set an agenda.

set verb (establish)

to establish or decide something

e.g. The committee has set new limits on spending.
