Minutes

Meeting minutes are simply a form of record keeping for the organization. Included should be basic information including date, time and location; who was in attendance and absent; decisions and motions made; and an overview of issues discussed and questions raised. 

Although you shouldn’t write everything that is said down, you should carefully summarize all relevant conversation.

Minutes will aide with planning, track progress and often resolve disputes.
