The ABCs of Minute Taking

September 18


Good meeting minutes demonstrate the due diligence of your board and committees and protect your organization. Writing minutes for your board meetings can be a daunting task, especially if there has been no training to do so. The job can be difficult. Hitting the balance between too much and too little information is just one of the many challenges. Good training can help!
