My boss recommended me for promotion. No specific position identified. Recommendation was more general; that I have talent and would be a good candidate to fill a management role.

I have several "get to know you" meetings scheduled with key leaders as a result. Definite interview feel to this; but I don't want to come across as egotistical and stiff since people tend to be more casual in my company.

What is the proper way to treat these meetings?

Summary - the are no unofficial interviews. Dress nicer, but whether or not to go with a suit is up to you. There are environments where it is too much; if you're in one of them, you know it. If you forgo the suit, go for a sports coat, no tie.

The thread in John's link is very helpful.

My add: [b]Know your accomplishments. Know 'em cold.[/b]

And use the meetings to gather information yourself: get their perspectives on organizational strategies, challenges, talent needs.
