I get the same behavior. Does it need to export it in a "tree" like
format, or would you be okay with your top level headline (the one you
want exported, but which is currently not) being the actual title of
the document? Or is that what you're currently getting.

With default settings (org-export-latex-title-command "\\maketitle"),
I get the top-most headline of the marked subtree as my document title
and the next level headline as the first section. Is this what you're
getting, or the top headline text isn't showing up in the document at

If having it as the title would work, you would get:
[centered]Minutes from <2013-01-18>[centered]

A bit of white space

Any text directly under "Minutes from <2013-01-18>"...

[section] The first headline under "Minutes from <2013-01-18>" [section]
text under that headline

[section 2] The second headline under "Minutes from <2013-01-18>" [section]
text under that headline

If it's just the centered text/bit white space gap you don't like, I'm
sure there's LaTeX header arguments you could put in your Org document
or setupfile to left-align the title and remove the space. What do you
think of that option?

Also... just to save you *one* keystroke,  you can put your cursor on
the headline of interest and do =C-e 1 p=, which I think does the same
as marking the whole subtree with =C-c @ C-e p=.
