Alleviate the stress, confusion, and fear that taking meeting minutes often causes.

Achieve rockstar status by learning how to:

Bonus Handout: Top 10 Tips for Expert Minute-Taking

Hot Tip: Traditionally minutes were concluded with “Respectfully submitted” and signed by the minutetaker. “Respectfully submitted” is outdated and should be replaced with “The Board of Directors approved the November 30, 2017, minutes on [fill in date].” The meeting chair and minutetaker sign and date when the minutes are approved and the approval date is filled in.
