It's sometimes difficult starting a new job at a new company, and frequent meetings are a common complaint. First of all, you have to adjust to your new environment. Every company has its own way of doing things. That doesn't mean it can't be improved, but first adjust to their schedule, and then work from the inside out to improve it. You have to know where they are coming from first.
I remember when we had a new employee who couldn't understand why we would spend time doing property checks to the extent that we did. We were already established, the buildings were well known and highly praised, but we would still do checks. Sometimes I would personally visit the property just to give it a walk through. What the person didn't understand is that it's something we do to make sure our standards are being maintained, and we do it often to stay on top of things. It may not be necessary, but it's something we consider to be important, and that will never change. After working with us for awhile, the new employee understood exactly why we were so careful with our properties. There was a reason for it that served us well. Frequent meetings may have a reason behind them that you are not yet aware of, and I would give them some time before making changes. They might be unnecessary, and they might not be. The CEO might be waiting to see if you have noticed what their meaning might be.
