The secretary of the board usually takes minutes during meetings. Written minutes are distributed to board members before each meeting for member's review. Request that a board member or staff person review the completed minutes. Some corporations require that the minutes be distributed to attendees for review and edits before distributing the official, signed copies. Reproduce or transcribe the minutes, entering the text in a formatted document that includes headings, numbered or bulleted items, bold or highlighted items of importance and signature lines for the person responsible for preparing the minutes.
