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
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.
