Minutes From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search This article is about the written record of a meeting. For the unit of time, see minute. For the unit of Measurement, see Minute of arc. Minutes, also known as protocols, are the instant written record of a meeting or hearing. They often give an overview of the structure of the meeting, starting with a list of those present, a statement of the various issues before the participants, and each of their responses thereto. They are often created at the moment of the hearing by a typist or court recorder at the meeting, who may record the meeting in shorthand, and then prepare the minutes and issue them to the participants afterwards. Alternatively, the meeting may be audiorecorded or notes taken, and the minutes prepared later. However it is often important for the minutes to be brief and concentrate on material issues rather than being a verbatim report, so the minutetaker should have sufficient understanding of the subject matter to achieve this. The minutes of certain entities, such as a corporate board of directors, must be kept and are important legal documents. Contents [hide]

Often speakers' words are recorded verbatim. and the time that the chair called the meeting to order. Since the primary function of minutes is to record the decisions made. any and all official decisions must be included. or that a particular aspect of an issue was duly considered. a minute might read "After voting. seconded. and his or her title. It is normally appropriate to send a draft copy of the minutes to all the members in advance of the meeting so that the meeting need not be delayed while everyone reads and corrects the draft. then they are approved. passed. It is also often common for adherents to the "less is more" approach to include certain facts: for example. If the members of the committee or group then agree that the written minutes reflect what happened at the meeting. regardless of the actual chronology. the Committee agreed to. or not. his or her typed (or printed) name. either in the order that it was actually said or in a more coherent order." It is not necessary to include the name of the person who seconds a motion." (although that phrase is slowly falling out of use) followed by the officer's signature.
