Board Meeting Minutes Training
At AMC, we’ve spent years (35 to be exact) helping boards govern and manage their operations more effectively. Yet lately, we’ve noticed more and more organizations struggling to take effective minutes of meetings. The simple fact is a set of well-constructed minutes of one meeting lays the foundation for the next.
While it often seems tedious, minute-taking is an essential task. Not only does it serve as a written record of what was discussed, agreed upon, and decided during the meeting. But good minute-taking helps to ensure that the meeting is productive, that you record decisions accurately, and that your organization can move forward with clear direction.
Yet, despite their importance, many boards continue to create less than stellar minutes (often by recording irrelevant statements, missing important decisions, and either recording too much or too little information.) Get your board ready for action by mastering the entire process of recording accurate board meeting minutes. Never record another irrelevant statement, miss an important decision or record too much or not enough by discovering our proven process:
