Typically each meeting has a leader that opens and closes, people go around the room for first name introductions, and–if the meeting size permits–folks are invited to share with the group pertaining to their experiences. If you do not wish to share or talk, you simply pass. *Meetings are traditionally followed by fellowship and conversation over snacks.
