Minute Taking Master Skills Update

If you hate taking minutes, you are not alone. If you question the easiest and best way to take minutes, you are not alone. However, if you have always done your minutes the same way, you might be in trouble! Why we take minutes hasn’t changed over the years, but HOW we take minutes has! It isn’t smart, easy, nor recommended to just list who said what. Are you taking minutes the right and legal way? Are you up to date with 2021 and the ramifications of online meetings, email decisions, and the speed at which we are working? Don’t assume things are the same as they have always been because they are not. Ensure both you and your company document what needs to be documented the right (and easy) way! Here is what we will cover:

  • Different types of minutes; when and why you should use a different format
  • What MUST appear in minutes (and why) and what you should leave out (and why)
  • Dealing with virtual meetings; what is new, required, and easy to implement techniques to ensure your minutes are doing their job
  • Motions, voting, decisions, bylaws, and more
  • Updating what has changed since you learned to take minutes
