There is no set frequency on Mgt Review meetings. Minimum, IMHO is annually. I would prefer quarterly. What's more important is the content, rather than the frequency. The most important reason to have them is to measure the effectiveness of the Quality Management System. You as a company, decide the frequency required to accomplish this. I knew a company that had them monthly, but to me they did not meet the intent of the standard and took away from the importance of these meetings.

There is no defined frequency. What ever works for your company to determine if your system is suitable and effective is acceptable.

We have an off site business planning and management review meeting once per year.
Throughout the year we have bi-monthly team meetings to assess the the elements for suitability and effectiveness. Each department gives an analysis of the element that directly effects them and presents it for review at the meeting.
Interwoven in this cycle is our internal audits which is focused on improvement rather then compliance.

During our first couple years of registration, we met monthly allowing each division manager/VP to review a section of the QM and associated procedures. Discussion during the meeting focused not only on the standard requirements but also how our manual and procedures fit to the standard, kind of a GAP analysis.
We now meet quarterly to discuss CARs, NCMRs, Improvement, etc.
The President has asked me to audit specific projects (ones that are losing money) to find root cause. Add new title to business card - QA/MR/"PI"
