Chapter 6. Meetings > Meeting Minutes

Meeting Minutes

Meeting minutes are a record of what took place during a meeting. It allows the meeting attendees to review the meeting later to look for outstanding issues and action items. In some cases, such as stockholder and board-of-directors meetings, the minutes are required by law and are included in the corporate minute book.

While attending a meeting, you can make handwritten notes, type on a computer if the sound of the typing does not distract the meeting attendees, or use a recording device and transcribe the meeting later (see Conference Notes, p. 180). Regardless of which method you use, make sure that all of the essential elements of the meeting are noted: type of meeting, company name, date and time, facilitator, main topics, and time of adjournment.
