More minute taking tips

Practically Perfect PA

It can be quite daunting taking minutes for a Committee that you have never met. Prior to the meeting introduce yourself to the chairperson (if you have not met them before) and ask them to either introduce you to the other Committee members or ask at the beginning of the meeting for each member to say their name. The Committee can help you. Although all of the actions will be captured in the minutes, a lot of Committees find a separate action table really helpful.
