Sample Minutes of Nonprofit Board Meeting

The minutes record the transactions of a meeting. The minutes of a meeting should record the transactions and not the individual interpretations of the person maintaining the minute.

While there are no specifications of how the minutes could be recorded, a minute typically includes:

  • Attendance of meeting
  • Who made motions
  • Agenda of motions
  • Motions passed and failed
  • Record of vote
  • Decisions

The minutes of a meeting should be widely circulated to the board members and made accessible to the staff, volunteers, press and the public in general.
