About this event

Does the thought of taking minutes make you want to hide? Meeting minutes are critical to the success of any business meeting, but the task of writing them can be daunting. This two hour workshop is designed to assist individuals in taking meeting minutes that are accurate, concise, and complete. By the end of the workshop, you’ll have the tools to produce minutes, which is a valuable record for your housing co-operative, whether it's committee or board meeting minutes. We’ll cover the following:

  • Meeting Pre-Planning
  • Record taking - at the meeting
  • Minutes writing or transcribing
  • Distributing or sharing of meeting minutes
  • Filing or storage of minutes for future reference
  • Meeting   
  • minute abbreviations
  • …and more!
