Course Outline

Lessons

The minutes of a meeting are the permanent record of actions planned or completed and decisions reached. Minutes are a running account and have an essential role and a real value. Minutes officially record the decisions reached and when the minutes are accepted, can only be altered by formal action. Full minutes keep absent members informed.

Minutes constitute a reminder of the topics discussed, and ensure that pending or deferred issues are not forgotten. In addition, the minutes represent the history of the organization and are invaluable to those who need to acquaint themselves with the work done in the past.

This workshop will focus on the following topic areas:

  • The benefits of being the minute taker
  • The importance of meetings
  • The most challenging aspects of taking minutes
  • The role of the chair
  • The role of the minute taker
  • The role of the participants
  • Additional responsibilities for a meeting
  • Using an agenda
  • Taking & organizing formal minutes
  • Recording motions
  • Taking & organizing informal minutes
  • Taking & organizing action minutes 
  • Excelling at taking any minutes
  • Selling your ideas
  • Being prepared
  • Sending a positive attitude
  • Do's & Don'ts of recording
  • Writing up the minutes

Value Added Option:
Participants at each training workshop are encouraged to send an email within three months following the workshop and expect a personal reply to assist with their learning experience.
