You need to assess what should and should not be kept in the corporate records.  There can be important consequences for inadequate meeting minutes.  You also need to appreciate who your audience is. During this presentation you will learn how to take and keep proper records of board, member, and committee meetings. We will also cover circumstances that require special consideration when keeping minutes such as conflicts of interest and related party transactions.
