There are others, yes, but this thread introduces you to yet another.
You're probably thinking about empezar or comenzar.

Not quite. The exact translation follows. A common alternative lies after that.

Antes de que = Before

comencemos = we start (subjunctive mood)
empecemos = we start (subjunctive mood)
entablemos = we start (subjunctive mood)

la reunión = the meeting (la junta is more like a board/committee meeting)
...

-or-

Antes de comenzar/empezar/entablar la reunión ...
