Meeting Minutes are not ….

September 2019

Meeting minutes are not intended to be a transcript recording every comment and argument in a board meeting.

Meeting minutes are intended to be factual and should include a limited amount of information:



  •  When and where a meeting was held
  • Attendees
  • Reports received; not the contents of these reports
  • Motions made; no mention of general discussions or conversations

As a general rule, meeting minutes should be no longer than one or two pages in length.
