I think it's probably not a "meeting with an editor" but rather a conference between the agents of the agency to discuss your manuscript and what revisions they may request. but also, I don't think you'd be remiss in asking her for a clarification.

Yeah, Thrash is right. It's a meeting with others in the agency to discuss signing your ms, what changes need to be made, how viable it is, things like that. Have you heard back on it yet?

Wait a minute-- do you mean you haven't signed with a PUBLISHER yet or that you haven't signed with an AGENT.
In the first instance--if you have an agent but not a publisher yet it is a good sign if, after an initial editor is approached by your agent he/she likes the manuscript enough to take it to committee.
In the second instance--if you have not signed with this agent/agency, they should not be showing your work to any publishers. Period. Because you only get one bite at those apples (each imprint of a publisher) and so you really do not those squandered until you've affirmatively decided who will represent you.

It sounds like the agent / agency that you are querying must be heavily editorial - some are, some aren't.
If they're taking it to an editorial meeting then the agent you queried is probably having a meeting with fellow agents in the agency to talk about how much work the ms may (or may not need) and (maybe?) checking with other agents about how they think this would be positioned in the market, genre wise.
