In almost all cases the reason for a meeting has been explained to a contactee ahead of time. This is to everyone's advantage. The contactee has time to mull over the issues, and comes to the meeting prepared. Those who state otherwise are in most cases describing meetings with entities other than ourselves, who are in the Service-to-Others orientation. The Service-to-Self orientation does not enjoy giving humans notice, as this diminishes the fear and intimidation that can be generated from surprise.
