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!

Workshop Overview

United Way is pleased to partner with Priti Shah, of PRAXIS Conflict Consulting for a workshop that will contribute to stronger due diligence of your board and committees. This workshop will help you (or your staff) perform minute taking more effectively and efficiently. Participants in The ABC’s of Minute Taking will gain knowledge in the following areas and,

  • Understand why we take minutes;
  • Learn steps for preparing minutes;
  • Understand the distinction between minute taking versus minute writing;
  • Learn how to set up the meeting for success;
  • Identify qualities of good minutes and how to get them; 
  • Sample old style minutes;  
  • Sample new style minutes;
  • Develop  a meeting minutes template;
  • Learn how to fix errors;
  • Identify what to do if you are confused at a meeting;
  • Understand the handling of confidential matters;
  • Be able to developing an Action Plan.
